The Rongai route is the only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north, close to the Kenyan border. Though gaining popularity amongst climbers, Rongai has low traffic. It is the preferred route for those looking for an alternative to the crowded Marangu route, for those who would like a more remote hike, and for those who are climbing during the rainy season (the north side receives less precipitation).

The minimum number of days required for this route is six days, and seven days are recommended.

Although the scenery is not as varied as the western routes, Rongai makes up for this by passing through true wilderness areas for days before joining the Marangu route at Kibo camp. This route descends down the Marangu route. Rongai is a moderately difficult route, and is highly recommended, especially for those with less backpacking experience.

“Let me just start off by saying out of all the places I have been, and tour companies I have dealt with, this is by far the most transparent, hassle-free, complete package company you could deal with.
From start to finish, my brother and I shopped different companies, but found this one as the best priced, least pushy, and most friendly.
My brother and I did 7 Day Mount Kilimanjaro trekking through Lemosho route and Enosa was excellent through-out. We were met as expected at the airport and transferred directly to the hotel (a very nice hotel called Kilimanjaro Wonders Hotel). That evening we had a briefing with our guides Regan and Roger who were extremely informative and put all our minds at rest (as we were a bit nervous about starting the climb the next day).
Our guide, Regan, and asst. guide Roger provided us with nothing but the best service the entire way up the mountain. Regan presented us with our entire crew from the very start of the hike, (I had read prior that sometimes guides will try and add an additional non-existent porter to collect more tip at the end) and made us laugh and enjoy our entire trip. Ronald was an honest man, someone who could be trusted, and you could see the respect that his team had for him the whole way up. Without Roger I wouldn't have made it to the top, and both of them constantly watched us and made sure that safety was the first priority.
Climbing Kilimanjaro was probably the most challenging, but also the most rewarding thing that we had ever done. Our crew was amazing sorting out all the food, water, tents etc. so we could just focus on getting to the top without anything else to worry.
Overall I would definitely recommend climbing Kilimanjaro as an experience and doing it with Enosa Expeditions.
If you are thinking of climbing Kilimanjaro, the best advice I could give would be do some decent training and make sure you get good kit (particularly a very warm sleeping bag and a good day rucksack). I'd also recommend the Lemosho route, as you ascend quite slowly (we hiked over 7 days in total) which gave plenty of time for acclimatisation to the altitude. A couple of us suffered from some altitude symptoms early on and had we done one of the shorter routes I don't think we could have acclimatised before summit day.”

“Very enjoyable trip, well organised, friendly staff and beautiful place. Made it to the top of Kilimanjaro for sunrise thanks to help of excellent guides. Food on trip was plentiful and tasty, porters worked very hard and were fast too. Thanks to all.”

“I went on a Kilimanjaro hike (7 day Lemosho) with my sister. The nature is amazing - especially the first two days. The route was also very good for aclimization - we didn't encounter any serious altitude sickness symptoms before summit-night. The trail is in great condition and is maintained very well. The mountain itself is majestic and abolutely huge! The campsites were clean and well organized.
If you enjoy the green rainforrest and aren't in a hurry to reach the summit, the Lemosho route is definately reccomendable.”
