About Rongai

The Rongai route is the main route that methodologies Kilimanjaro from the north, near the Kenyan outskirt. In spite of the fact that picking up ubiquity among climbers, Rongai has low traffic. It is the favored route for those searching for an option to the swarmed Marangu route, for the individuals who might want a progressively remote hike, and for the individuals who are climbing during the blustery season (the north side gets less precipitation). The base number of days required for this route is six days, and seven days are prescribed. In spite of the fact that the view isn't as shifted as the western routes, Rongai compensates for this by going through obvious wild regions for quite a long time before joining the Marangu route at Kibo camp. This route dives down the Marangu route. Rongai is a reasonably difficult route, and is exceptionally suggested, particularly for those with less hiking background. We will do Pre-Trip preparation and gear check one day prior, our guide will meet you anyplace inside an hour of Arusha/Moshi for the instructions and gear check.

Travel Tips

  • Though the peak can be reached in 6 days, but 7 days is most recommended.
  • Take it easy and don't try to rush to the top and always listen to your guide.
  • Drink lots of water and stay hydrated.
  • The amount of Oxygen on the top is only 50% as compared to the amount of Oxygen you are used to have. So pay attention to your body signals and inform your guide as soon as possible.
  • Choose the dry season to experience your trek the most.
  • If possible avoid taking pills like Diamox. It may show harmful side effects.
  • Pack the necessary gears and double-check the complete list.
  • Prepare a 'Kilimanjaro playlist' to listen to during your hike which helps to break your mental stress and physical exhaustion.


On the first day, the trail heads towards the corn and potato fields and then moves through the forest which is home to a variety of wildlife, including the black and white colobus monkey. Then the trekking continues through the moorland, leaving the main trail for a smaller path towards the jagged peaks of Mawenzi. The landscape changes dramatically in the Alpine Desert zone. The unique landscapes offer stunning views of Kibo and Mawenzi.
