The Rongai route on Kilimanjaro
The fourth of five routes that we will talk about.
The Rongai route is the only route that starts from the Northern side of Kilimanjaro, close to the boarder with Kenya.
On the first day a very long drive around the mountain will take you to the wooden Village of Nale Moru.
Fewer people make use of this route, and so for the first couple of days, until the route meet up at Kibo huts, you may not see any other people.
At each camp you will be sleeping in tents, and your summit attempt will be via Gillman’s point all the way up to Uhuru peak.
If you have done Kilimanjaro in the past, and looking for something different, then a good choice in route.
