Luxury Kilimanjaro Climb 7 Day Machame Route Hike: Machame Route is the “Whiskey” route. It is the second most popular and one of the most scenic routes on the mountain.

All climbers sleep in tents (tents are included) and meals are served in a dinner tent or on a blanket outside. It is done over 7 days, so acclimatization is easier, and the success rate is fairly high. It is for physically fit people with some hiking experience.

Descent is down the Mweka trail staying at the Mweka or Millenium camp the final night on the mountain.

Luxury Kilimanjaro Climb 7 Day Machame Route Hike Itinerary in Detail

Day 1 : Drive to Kilimanjaro National Park Machame Gate (1830 Meters/ 6000 Feet), Hike to Machame Camp (3050 Meters/ 9950 Feet)

Drive from Moshi to the Mount Kilimanjaro National Park Gate takes about 45 minutes. The journey passes through the village of Machame which is located on the lower slopes of the mountain.

We depart the park gate and walk through the rain forest on a winding trail up a ridge. At lower elevations the trail can be muddy and slippery.

Gaiters and trekking poles are a good idea here. We continue a short distance until we reach the Machame Camp.

Hiking Distance 11 Kilometers/ 7 Miles and the hiking time is 5-6 hours through Montane Forest

Meal Plan: {Lunch & Dinner}

Day 2 : Hike Machame Camp (3050 Meters/ 9950 Feet) Hike to Shira Camp (3850 Meters/ 12,600 Feet)

Day 3 : Hike Shira Camp (3850 Meters/ 12,600 Feet) Hike to Lava Tower to Barranco Camp (4000 Meters/ 13,000 Feet)

From the Shira Plateau we continue to the east up a ridge, passing the junction towards the peak of Kibo.

As we continue, our direction changes to the South East towards the Lava Tower, called the “Shark’s Tooth” (4650 meters/ 15,250 Feet).

Shortly after the tower we come to the second junction which goes to the Arrow Glacier.

We now continue down to the Barranco Camp. Although you end the day around the same elevation as when you began, this day is very important for acclimatization and will help your body prepare for summit day.

Very early in the morning (midnight to 2 am), we continue our way to the summit between the Rebmann and Ratzel glaciers.  You head in a northwesterly direction and ascend through heavy scree towards Stella Point on the crater rim.

This is the most mentally and physically challenging portion of the trek. At Stella Point you will stop for a short rest and will be rewarded with the most magnificent sunrise you are ever likely to see. Faster hikers may view the sunrise from the summit.

From Stella Point, you may encounter snow all the way on your 1-hour ascent to the summit. Once at Uhuru Peak you have reached the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the continent of Africa!

From the summit we begin our descent by continuing straight down to the Mweka Camp, stopping at Barafu for lunch. You may want gaiters and trekking poles for the loose gravel going down.

We arrive at Mweka Camp and enjoy our last evening on the mountain.
