    6 Days Machame Route Kilimanjaro, also known as the Whiskey Route, has become very popular. This is the camping route that offers spectacular views of various landscapes. Examples, are Mt Meru, Pare Mountains, Lake Chala, and Lake Jipe. While the 6 Days Machame Route Kilimanjaro itinerary is very possible and easy due to the extra days.  We can have the Seven Days Machame climb instead of Six. Reason for that is because of  acclimatization and resting before the summit day. Doing this will maximize your chance of reaching the top.


    • This is one of three popular routes up to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.
    • There are lots of combinations and other routes too, please enquire with our team to see more options.
    • Considered by the majority of our guides as the most beautiful route to Mt Kilimanjaro’s summit.  Machame starts in the forest and has clear day views of the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro – Kibo Peak.
    • Machame is a camping route and is tougher than Rongai and Marangu routes as it is steeper.
