The Machame Route
Also known as the ‘whiskey route’, the Machame Route is the most popular on Mount Kilimanjaro with its scenic beauty. However, the trail is also considered difficult, steep and challenging, particularly due to its shorter itinerary, and is therefore better suited for the more adventurous or those with some high altitude, hiking or backpacking experience. The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the south, beginning with a short drive from Moshi to Machame Gate. The path leads hikers through the rain forest to Shira Plateau, where many of Kilimanjaro’s routes converge. Then the route turns east and traverses underneath Kilimanjaro’s Southern Ice Field on a path known as the Southern Circuit before summiting from Barafu. The descent is made via the Mweka route.
