19,340ft vs your two feet – Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the largest volcanoes ever to break through the Earth's crust. Don’t underestimate this challenge – the night you climb to the summit includes 1,000m of ascent and over 2,000m of descent. But you’ll never experience anything like the feeling of reaching the top.
The Rongai route starts just south of the Kenya-Tanzania border. For years, it was mostly unused, but now it’s open for climbing again. Experienced guides say this route is more manageable and beautiful than the main Marangu trail.
The Rongai route begins in attractive farmland and forest. You’ll pass through several climate zones, and you may have the chance to see some wildlife.
Temperatures drop at night, so you can enjoy the crisp cool air under the star-studded African skies. During the days you'll rise higher, often looking down on a sea of clouds.
"The trip itself was simply the best time of my life and I'm delighted to say both me and my dad made it to the summit." Stephanie, recent Kilimanjaro trekker.
