Machame Route

The Machame Route, known as the “Whiskey” route, is now the most popular route to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro through Kilimanjaro Tours.

Machame approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the southwest and descends using Mweka, rewarding climbers with views of the expansive Shira Plateau; an optional scramble up Lava Tower, a climb up the Great Barranco Wall and a traverse underneath Kilimanjaro’s Southern Icefield. The descent of Mount Kilimanjaro occurs on the Mweka route.
