Rongai RouteTanzania Mount Kilimanjaro trekking Rongai route;


9 Days Kilimanjaro Climbing Rongai Route (7 days on mountain)

 

The rongai route is the handiest path that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north, close to the Kenyan border. rongai's ascent profile could be very just like that of marangu. Its miles considered one of kilimanjaro's less complicated routes. The climb to the top is slow and regular. However, in contrast to marangu, this course has low crowds and passes thru remote wasteland regions. It might be the only path wherein seeing natural world in the first days is feasible.

The rongai path is one of the easiest routes and the fulfillment price could be very high.

The route starts off evolved at the north facet of the mountain just south of the Kenyan border, and is one of the least traveled routes. the descent is down the marangu route on the south facet of the mountain, so climbers see the mountain from many view factors.

The force to the trail head takes about 2.five hours from moshi through many villages and espresso plantations, which includes a present to sign up hiking permits at marangu.

The rongai route also can be accessed from amboseli countrywide park in Kenya. Permit 2 hours such as border crossing. We can need copies of passports ahead of time
