Rongai route Kilimanjaro ascends Mount Kilimanjaro from the northeastern side of the mountain, along the border between Tanzania and Kenya. The Rongai route Kilimanjaro retains a sense of unspoiled wilderness. The Rongai route Kilimanjaro is the only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro via The Rongai Route
Less crowded because of its remote location the route offers trekkers a unique wilderness experience where it is possible to see large wildlife like antelope, elephant and buffalo. As there is typically less moisture on this side of the mountain you are less likely to encounter rain and have more unclouded views of the peak.
While it is flatter, it does not give the climb high sleep low option and therefore recommended to select more days for acclimatization.
The Rongai route is one of the easier routes up Kilimanjaro. Rongai is the only route to approach Kilimanjaro from the north and the descent is via the Marangu Route. Summit night from Kibo Hut is steep and follows the same path taken by the Marangu route which passes Gilman’s Point to Uhuru Peak.
There are several variations; the one described is a longer route taken in Mawenzi Tarn.
