What is the best route to take hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro?

Because of its higher success rates to the summit compared to many other routes, the Lemosho and Machame routes have been highlighted as the mostly best route in Kilimanjaro. In these two routes, you acclimatize and make your body get used to altitude easily every day; for more successful trekking, Machame 7 days and Lemosho 8 days are recommended.

There are seven camping routes on Kilimanjaro and only one lodge route, the Marangu route. The Coca-Cola way (Marangu route) is considered the quickest, although the journey from base camp to the summit has never been simple. Also through Marangu, you ascend and descend along the same way and sleep in the park hut; during the busiest season, advance booking is necessary three months before to the trip.

There are seven camping routes, one of which is specifically designed for descending, namely the Mweka path. Rongai, Umbwe, Machame, Lemosho, Shira, and northern circuit routes are among of the other rising camping routes.
