8-day Mount Kilimanjaro trek via the Northern Circuit route | undefined

Join one of our experienced and certified guides for an 8-day journey to the summit of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania along the beautiful Northern Circuit.


8 Days





* Enjoy an 8-day ascent of Kilimanjaro.

* Climb the famed peak along the new, long Northern Circuit Route.

* Spend your nights in various camps and huts.


New and long, the Northern Circuit route that will take you to the top of Kilimanjaro (5,895m) is an incredible opportunity for any adventurer looking to scale one of the world’s most famous mountains. And, for 8 days, we would like to guide you along this amazing route.

After we’ve picked you up from the Kilimanjaro International Airport and you’ve settled into a hotel in Moshi for the night, our journey will begin. Our trip up the Northern Circuit will begin in the West, at the Londorossi Gate. From there, we will follow the Lemosho Route for 2 days. After that, we will continue on, further and further up Kilimanjaro. And, at the end of each long, scenic and physically tiring day, we will rest in a different camp site or hut. Each site will provide you with a comfortable place where you can recharge for the following day’s ascent. Moreover, the views you will get of the night sky will take your breath away.

There are a number of amazing highlights to be seen along the Northern Circuit. They include the Shira Camps, the Shira Plateau, the Lava Tower and so much more. Finally, the feelings, as well as the views you will get to enjoy from the summit of the peak are spectacular in every way.

Participants on this trip should be in good physical condition.

Climbing Kilimanjaro is an experience you will cherish for as long as you live. There is something uplifting and memorable about scaling such an iconic, majestic peak. To live that experience for 8-days, along the Northern Circuit Route, all you have to do is send a request.

We also offer a 9-day journey up Kilimanjaro along the Lemosho Route that includes a night at the Crater Camp.
