Known as the "Whiskey" route, the Machame route is now one of the most popular routes on the mountain. Compared with Marangu, the days on Machame are longer and the walks are steeper. The Machame route is considered a difficult route, and is better suited for more adventurous folks and those with some hiking or backpacking experience.
The route begins from the south, then heads east, traversing underneath Kilimanjaro's southern ice field before summiting. The minimum number of days required for this route is six days, although seven days is recommended to be able to adjust to the hight. This will also make your journey slightly more comfortable.
The Machame route is scenically beautiful as you pass through varied landscapes every day which is exactly what makes this route so unique!
