Conquer Africa's highest peak from the drier, northern side of the mountain. Follow the Rongai Route, climbing the mountain from the North and descending via the popular Marangu Route with its diverse climate zones and stunning views. This route's gentle approach has a high success rate due to the slow ascent. You'll camp beside the only lake on the mountain and enjoy spectacular views over Kenya's Amboseli plains. Local guides, cooks, and porters will provide support during your trek and at campsites along the way.

Climb up the less-visited northern slopes through varied ecosystems.
Continue ascending with superb views of the eastern ice fields.
Ascend through grassy slopes up to an area with majestic views.
Hike slowly through the famous "saddle" between the Mawenzi and Kibo peaks.
Night hike to the Summit via Gillman's Point. Appreciate the beautiful sunrise before descending to Horombo Huts Camp.
Continue the descent through forested lower slopes to Moshi. Meet the mamas of the Moshi Women's Cooperative, a G supported project, for a climbing ceremony.
Continue down through moorland to Mandara Hut (2770m), the first stopping place on the Marangu route. Descend through lovely lush forest on a good path to the National Park gate at Marangu (1879m). Transfer to hotel in Moshi for a well-deserved night in relative comfort.
Time to relax, take a shower, and celebrate with a drink. Cheers to climbing Mt Kilimanjaro! Before dinner, you will be welcomed and congratulated on your climb by the mamas of the Moshi Women's Cooperative, a project supported by G Adventures. They will present you with a gift and a certificate to remember all your efforts on the mountain.
