Highlights: Known as the “Coca-Cola” route, it’s the easiest and shortest route to the summit. This is a popular choice for inexperienced climbers. It’s famous for its well-maintained huts and stunning views of Kilimanjaro’s rainforest. However, it has a low success rate due to the rapid ascent, which can cause altitude sickness.
Highlights: This route offers diverse ecosystems, longer acclimatization periods, and breathtaking landscapes. It’s a more challenging route but has a higher success rate compared to Marangu. Trekkers traverse through rainforest, heath, moorland, and alpine desert before reaching the summit.
Highlights: The Lemosho Route is known for its stunning views and one of the highest success rates among Kilimanjaro routes. Climbers start in lush rainforest and gradually navigate through scenic heath and alpine zones before reaching the summit. The longer duration allows for better acclimatization.
Highlights: It’s the only route that starts from the north side of Kilimanjaro, offering a unique perspective. The Rongai Route is less traveled, making it a great option for those seeking a quieter trek. It features diverse landscapes, including lush forests, moorland, and alpine desert. The gradual ascent improves acclimatization.
Highlights: The Umbwe Route is known for its challenging and steep ascent. It’s a shorter route with fewer trekkers, making it ideal for experienced climbers looking for a demanding climb. The route offers impressive views but requires excellent physical fitness.
Highlights: This is the longest route, providing ample time for acclimatization and a quieter experience. The Northern Circuit Route traverses diverse landscapes and offers unique views. Trekkers have a higher chance of reaching the summit due to the extended acclimatization period.

The choice of route depends on your trekking experience, fitness level, and the kind of experience you seek.
