Rongai Route - Kilimanjaro

5 Star rated safari company in Moshi, Tanzania on TripAdvisor

Rongai Route

Rongai is the only route that approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the north, close to the Kenyan border and does offer the closest to a wilderness experience.

It is a remote trek in through barren landscape that is relatively disinteresting and it suffers from one of the lowest summit success rates. This is due to the route’s topography which does not allow the climber to “walk high, sleep low”.

Descent is via the Marangu route.
