Known as the "Whiskey" route, the Machame route is now the most popular route on the mountain. The route begins from the south, then heads east, traversing underneath Kilimanjaro's southern ice field before summiting. The minimum number of days required for this route is six days, although seven days is recommended.The Machame route is extremely beautiful and varied and this makes it immensely popular among visitors.

However, when compared with Marangu, the days on Machame are longer and the walks are steeper. The Machame route is considered a slightly difficult route, and is therefore better suited for more adventurous folks and those with some hiking or backpacking experience.

“we book Kilimanjaro 6 Days via Lemosho route , Every aspect of the 6 days climb was very organized. Our guides August and Simon were highly experienced and knowledgeable of the mountain. They knew exactly what they were doing and we made it to the top uhuru peak the top roof of Africa 5895m ,they make sure safety to us is very important every morning and after dinner they were doing medical checkup .the food was delicious dishes served included: fish fillet, roast potatoes, spaghetti bolognaise and chicken. The chicken was of a particularly high standard; high quality cuts of fillet. Fresh fruit was in abundance, Hot chocolate, tea, coffee, popcorn and cookies awaited us at every lunch/dinner stop. Aloyce the owner was extremely accommodating and made sure that everything went to plan. We recommend to everyone one want to climb mount kilimanjaro”
