Join me on this Northern Circuit Kilimanjaro climb and discover one of the world’s 7 summits! On this 9-day adventure in Tanzania, we will explore one of the most amazing mountains in the world as we climb to the top of the famous Kilimanjaro.

Kilimanjaro is an emblematic mountain in Tanzania, and at 5,895 m, it is the highest mountain in Africa. There are many ways to tackle this breathtaking peak, however, the Northern Circuit Kilimanjaro route has the highest summit success rate. It is also the longest route, which allows for the most acclimatization time. The route approaches Mount Kili from the west and departs from Londorosi Gate. The descent is through the Mweka route and ends at the Mweka Gate.

On this 9-day adventure, we will have the chance to tackle the Northern Circuit Kilimanjaro route. We will set off with porters, tents and all the necessary equipment and food for the trip. Keep in mind that you will need to have a good fitness level as we will enjoy an average of 3-6 hours of trekking every day and different terrains and climatic conditions. Of course, one of our guides will be there to help you every step of the way.

You did not give a detailed packing list for this trekking. it would be nice if you already to give the option to stay in the Austrian Hut (we did) . The daily description could be better. The first day we walked 5 km and the last day 9km. The other days we walked 7-8 hours
