The Machame route is also known as the 'Whiskey route', given its reputation for being a tough climb, in contrast to the easier Marangu route, which is known as the 'Coca Cola route'. Unlike the gradual incline and hut accommodations found on the Marangu Route, the climbers on Machame hike steeper trails, for longer distances, while sleeping in tents.

Machame is ideal for those who want a more difficult climb, and are confident in their ability to hike over extended periods of time on sometimes steep terrain. Although a tough route, climbers are rewarded with varied scenery.

The seven day Machame variation is the ideal schedule for this route. The trek from Barranco to Barafu is broken up into two days, allowing for a short day just prior to the summit attempt. This is important because summit day begins very early, around midnight, so climbers are sleep deprived going into the toughest day on the mountain. By having a short day beforehand, climbers can be better rested.

“We had very good experience with Kilisa Tours on our 7 days Machame Kilimanjaro climb

Their guides are professional and speak very good English! I owe my success summit Kilimanjaro to Bakari, Daniel, who made sure that we are comfortable at each stage. Special mention to the food provided during the trek- it was both delicious and healthy.

The prices are the best and camping was to our satisfaction. Naick the owner did utmost to answer all our questions and advised correctly. They made sure we had a Memorable life time experience.”

“It was my first time to climb Mountain and I am so excited to reach to the top roof of Africa that was a great and fantastic feeling to be there; I used 7 Days Kilimanjaro Trekking via Machame route as a solo hiker. Though Machame route ( “whisky route” ) seems to be a challenging one but worth it for a successful and great victory rate.”
