  • Enjoy a 9-day expedition to the summit of Kilimanjaro.

  • Climb along the new, expansive Northern Circuit Route.

  • Spend your nights in various campsites during the trip.


The newest and longest route you can take to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895m): the Northern Circuit is a great means to reaching the top of one of the most famous mountains on earth.

Our 9-day adventure will begin after you’ve been picked up at the Kilimanjaro International Airport and taken to your hotel in Moshi. After that, you will start the climb.

The Northern Circuit begins in the West, at the Londorossi Gate. It then proceeds to follow the same path as the Lemosho route, which is another one of the newer, popular climbing routes on Kilimanjaro, for the next 2 days. From there, we will cross the Shira Plateau and make our way toward the Lava Tower. After that, we will continue along the Northern Circuit, where you will get to soak in a truly expansive adventure around Mount Kilimanjaro. You will get to enjoy a number of unbelievable viewpoints of the mountain and the surrounding Tanzanian landscape. You will also get to enjoy the peace and serenity of the peak’s quiet northern slopes that are located on the eastern side of the peak.

Since we will be climbing for 9 days, it is imperative that participants on this trip are in good physical condition. Prior experience climbing on similar terrain is recommended as well.

To climb Kilimanjaro along a route as long and scenic as the Northern Circuit is a journey you will constantly look back upon over the course of your life. To join us on this magical trip, all you have to do is send a request.

If time is an issue, we also offer a 5-day trip to the top of Kilimanjaro along the Marangu Route.
