How many days would I need to safely trek Kilimanjaro?

You’ll need at least two days to acclimatize at a good hotel at the mountain’s base. This is quite useful when climbing. Normally, it is determined by your preferred path. There are five different ways to get to the summit.

  • Lemosho Route – 7-8 Days
  • Machame Route – 6-7 days
  • Northern Circuit -9 days
  • Rongai route – 8 days
  • Marangu Route: 5-6 days
  • Umbwe route. – 6 days

The Marangu path is the most straightforward and the only one with cottages/huts accommodation. It takes 6 days for trekkers to hike and descend the mountain. The Machame route is recommended for the more athletic and daring. Because of the difficult terrain, it takes 6 to 8 days. Tents are provided for sleeping.
