About
We always recommend you have at least 1 day in town before starting your trek.  This gives you time to rest, relax and prepare.   This route should only be considered by those with some sturdy calf muscles and experience trekking at high altitude.  It is the shortest route on Kilimanjaro (just 28km to the top) but there is no such thing as a short cut on the mountain.  Provided you have done a fair bit of training and are used to trekking at altitude, you will absolutely love this climb and the thought you have trekked a path few others would be prepared to take.  The route below describes the summit via the Barafu route (joining up with Lemosho and Machame on the third day).
