At around 8.00 am, start riding from Keys Hotel to Moshi town. The city is on the slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest peak of Africa. Enjoy the scenery, get to meet the people of Kilimanjaro and experience their culture. Then continue riding on the tarmac road to Tanzania Sugar Cane Plantation (TPC), about 10 km where you will be riding in the middle of sugar cane fields to Kiyungi bus stop.
Then turn right and continue to Chemka Hot Spring. The ride is about 27 km on a bumpy windy and rough road. Take some pictures of the beautiful view of Mt Kilimanjaro. On your left side, you will have a good view of Rundugai hills. Pass through the village, see some of the local people, their houses surrounded by small plantations of bananas.
You are now at Chemka Hot Spring, which is surrounded by a beautiful forest. Take a swim in the blue, fresh water from the sources of Mt. Kilimanjaro springs. The water is a perfect temperature, warmed by a natural hot spring. The pond can be very deep, in some places up to 8 meters, but the water is so clear that you can see right to the bottom.
This is a little oasis, with little fish that enjoy eating the dead skin off your feet! There are dragonflies and butterflies racing with grace over the glistening water. Enjoy the fun too of the rope swing into the water. Enjoy the amazing scenery of palm trees hanging over the clear blue tranquil water. Enjoy some good local food at the springs.
At around 3.00 pm start riding back to Keys Hotel via Chekereni Village and town centre (about 8 km).
