3 Day Short Kilimanjaro Climb

Every year, thousands of people just like you set foot in Tanzania to climb Kilimanjaro, The Highest African Peak. Also the tallest -free-standing mountain in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro.



Day 1: Arusha to Marangu Gate, Hike to Mandara Hut

After breakfast and briefing, drive to the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate (about 1 hour), register and commence the climb. Walk through the rain forest to the Mandara encampment. A side trip to Maundi Crater is a good way to see the surroundings including Northern Tanzania and Kenya. In the rain forest, look for towering Eucalyptus trees, bird life, and Colobus monkeys.

Day 2: Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut

You leave the glades of the rain forest and follow an ascending path on the open moorlands to the Horombo encampment. Views of Mawenzi and the summit of Kibo are amazing. Look for giant lobelias and groundless. You may begin to feel the effects of the altitude.

Day 3: Horombo Hut to park gate, returns to Arusha

After breakfast, a steady descent takes us down through moorland to the Mandara Hut. Continue descending through lush forest path to the National Park gate at Marangu. At lower elevations, it can be wet and muddy. Gaiters and trekking poles will help. Shorts and t-shirts will probably be plenty to wear. A vehicle will meet you at Marangu village to drive you back to Peace hotel in Arusha.
