6 Days Rongai Route Overview

The 6 Days Rongai Route is the only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north, near the Kenyan border. Rongai’s ascent profile is very similar to that of Marangu. It is one of Kilimanjaro’s easier routes. The climb to the top is gradual and steady. However, unlike Marangu, this route has low crowds and passes through remote wilderness areas. It is probably the only route where seeing wildlife in the first days is possible.

The route takes six days minimum to complete, although seven days is recommended. The descent is down Mweka, on the southeast side of the mountain. Because the starting point is far from Moshi, it is more expensive to climb this route due to the added transportation cost of getting climbers to the gate.

Scenically, Rongai is beautiful because it travels through an unspoiled rain forest and remote wilderness area. However, it is not as scenically varied as Machame, Lemosho, and Shira.


6 Days Rongai Route Itinerary

Kilimanjaro Airport – Moshi

No need to arrange transport! Our transfer driver will collect you and all your gear from Kilimanjaro Airport and take you to the hotel in Moshi. Relax after your flight, take a dip in the pool or explore Moshi. Later you will meet the Enjoy kili operation team. They will tell you more about the trip, share tips, and safety information, and thoroughly check your gear to see if you have everything you need. Supper is included in tonight’s accommodation at Keys Hotel

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner


Day 1 Moshi – Nalemoru Gate (1990 m) – Simba Camp (2625 m)

You will have breakfast before all the gear is loaded. It is a long drive – about four hours – to the north side of Kilimanjaro. After registration at Nalemoru Gate, the hike begins. You will walk pass small farms, pine trees, and then up into the forest on the mountain slopes. You might be lucky to see the colobus monkeys with extravagant black and whitetails. The porters will go in front to set up camp while you will hike at a moderate pace to reach the Simba campsite (2625 m) in about four hours. The tents and some warm washing water will be ready. A warm supper will be served.

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner


Day 2 Simba Camp (2625 m) – Kikelewa Camp (3630 m)

After some hot porridge and eggs, you will set off on today’s section. Vegetation is changing and you see more shrubs as you walk through the moorland zone. On a clear day, you should see the Kenyan plains and Mawenzi peak. There will be a break at Second Cave (3450 m) where you will stop for lunch before crossing over some ups and downs to reach Kikelewa Camp. Tea is served! The camp has great views. Relax and breathe in the tranquillity of the mountain.

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner


Day 3 Kikelewa Camp (3630 m) – Mawenzi Tarn Hut (4310 m)

Today you will not see the weird-looking species as the landscape change to resemble a rocky moon landscape. If there are no clouds, you will see the Mawenzi and Kibo peaks. After about six hours of work, you should reach Mawenzi Hut. A small lake nearby freezes over at night so expect the night to be very cold.  Fear not, a hot supper waits.

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner


Day 4 Mawenzi Tarn Hut (4310 m) – Kibo Hut (4700 m)

On a good firm path, you will cross the Saddle today. You will feel the altitude and might experience symptoms of altitude sickness – headache and nausea? Takes lots of fluid and keeps going very slowly. You will hear your guide say pole pole – slowly slowly. One last tough section and you will be there. You will camp at the Kibo Hut tonight, but not before some dinner and hot chocolate. Get your daypack ready and go to bed early as you will be woken up at around 00:00 to start the final stretch to the summit.

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner


Day 5 Kibo Hut (4700 m) – Uhuru Peak (5895 m) – Horombo Hut (3700 m)

Rise and shine! It will be dark and very cold when you enter the darkness on the way to the top. A row of headlights in front of you will show the way. Take it slow and listen to your guide. The ground will be frozen and you will get very tired, but keep going. After about seven hours you will be standing on the crater’s rim – Gillman’s Point (5685 m). Warming up in the sun, it is just an hour or two to reach Uhuru Peak at 5 895m. You will be standing on the highest mountain in Africa! The return path is almost the same, but now the ground is defrosted and it will be dusty. It will be late morning when you arrive at the Kibo Hut. Here you will rest for an hour and have a hot meal. Onwards! The descent continues to Horombo Hut where you will rest for the night.

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner


Day 6 Horombo Hut (3700 m) – Marangu Gate (1860 m) – Moshi

Today is the last day on the mountain. The descent to Marangu Gate will take about six hours. Here, the crew will say farewell and the transfer driver will be waiting. At Sal Salinero Hotel, cold drinks will be waiting too. No doubt you will enjoy a shower and a swim before sitting down for supper to celebrate your adventure.

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner
