Day 3: Amboseli to Mt Kilimanjaro via Rongai Route

Early breakfast at the camp and thereafter check out and drive to Mt Kilimanjaro. The climb begins from the attractive wooden village of Nale Moru (1,950 m.) on a small path those winds through fields of maize and potatoes before entering the pine forest.
The track then starts to climb consistently, but gently through an attractive forest that shelters a variety of wildlife, including the beautiful Kilimanjaro Colobus monkey.
The forest begins to thin out and Rongai One Camp is at the edge of the moorland zone (2,600 m.) with extensive views over the Kenyan plains. [3-4 hours walk].

Day 4: Rongai Third Caves

The morning walk is a steady ascent up to the ‘Third Cave’ (3,450 m) with superb views of Kibo and the Eastern icefields on the crater rim. After lunch, we continue up to the Third Cave. (3,900 m) [5-6 hours walk].

Day 5: Rongai School Hut

The steady ascent continues, soon reaching the lunar desert of the ‘Saddle’ between Mawenzi and Kibo. We should reach School Hut Campsite (4,750 m.) at the bottom of the Kibo Crater wall by midday. The remainder of the day is spent resting in preparation for the final ascent before a very early night! [4-5 hours walk].

Day 6:  Summit and down Horrombo Hut

We will start the final, and by far the steepest and most demanding, part of the climb by torchlight around 1 a.m. We plod very slowly in the darkness on a switchback trail through loose volcanic scree to reach the crater rim at Gillman’s Point (5,685 m.)
We will rest there for a short time to enjoy the spectacular sunrise over Mawenzi. Those who are still feeling strong can make the three hour round trip to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro (5,895 m.), passing close to the spectacular glaciers and ice cliffs that still occupy most of the summit area.
The descent to School (4,700 m.) is surprisingly fast and, after some refreshment, we continue the descent to reach our final campsite at Horombo (3,720 m.). [11-15 hours walk].
