A fully organized trip to Tanzania in which you will have the help of experienced guides, the support of porters and cooks, so that you can enjoy the ascent of Kilimanjaro with the best guarantees.
This route of ascent to the highest mountain in Africa , is where we find the greatest unevenness per stage with respect to those made in any of the other itineraries, so we must not underestimate it. The hardness of trekking lies in the degree of acclimatization. On our organized trip , the third day is designed to improve this aspect, taking a tour of the surroundings of the Horombo Hut . The key day, the fifth day, you will start the ascent very early from Kibo Hut , to reach Uhuru Peak , the highest point of Kilimanjaro, at dawn. With the help of the guide who will accompany you and using six days in this adventure, the guarantees of reaching one of the coveted " seven peaks " are very high.

The first section of the day begins with a moderate unevenness, until reaching the area of greater vegetation and humid forest. When we reach the level of three thousand meters, the landscape changes from tropical forest to high altitude savannah, a constant landscape until the last stage, when we enter the high mountain area. We walk alongside giant lobelias , savanna flowers such as the " red hot pecker ", senecios - the most spectacular species in the area - and savanna shrubs, until we reach Horombo Hut , a group of shelters in about five or six hours. type "bungalow", houses for cooking and with a large shelter-dining room.

We will get up at midnight and have a small snack before undertaking the ascent to Gillman's Point (5,680 m.), Already on the crest ridge. The first section has a moderate and maintained slope and is a key point in the ascent. When we reach the ridge, the route that separates us to the top of Uhuru Peak is easy but because of the altitude it is hard. Our guide will always accompany you to the main summit, so we will have to make an effort and maintain the illusion of reaching the roof of Africa and not returning and “taking it for granted”. An intermediate point on the ridge is Stella Point (5,700 m.), Where the Marangu Route and the Machame Route meet.. From that point we begin to skirt the diamond glacier, an impressive barrier of seracs, eternal ice just three degrees south of latitude on the equator. The reward for so much effort is found at the summit of Kilimanjaro , Uhuru Peak (5,895 m.) , And the views of a unique sunrise on the planet.
