  • 7 Days of Mount Kilimanjaro trekking via the Rongai route
  • Spending nights on tents while trekking through true wilderness during the days
  • Amazing adventure on a less crowded route up to the peak
The Rongai route is the only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north, close to the Kenyan border. Though gaining popularity amongst climbers, the Rongai route still experiences low traffic.

Rongai 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.
