Rongai Route

The Rongai Route is the only route that approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the north, close to the Kenyan border.

Though gaining popularity amongst climbers of Mount Kilimanjaro, the Rongai Route still experiences low traffic.

Rongai is the preferred route for those looking for an alternative to the crowded Marangu Route. For those who would like a more remote hike to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro and for those who are climbing during the rainy season in Tanzania (the north side receives less precipitation).

Although the scenery is not as varied as the western routes, Rongai makes up for this by passing through true wilderness areas for days before joining the Marangu Route at Kibo Camp. This route descends down the Marangu Route.
