Mount Kilimanjaro can be climbed most of the year, although it is inadvisable during the rainy season, which is April and May and during the short rains in November.
The summit of Kilimanjaro is definitely a challenge, and there are risks involved, but it can be reached by any reasonably fit person who enjoys hiking, and reaching the summit will be an experience of a lifetime!
The youngest person to make it was seven years old – the oldest seventy-eight!
There are seven official trekking routes by which to ascend and descend Kilimanjaro: Lemosho, Lemosho Western-Breach, Machame, Marangu, Mweka, Rongai, Shira, and Umbwe.
We offer various tours for Mount Kilimanjaro Climb such as the common and popular Marangu Route, the more steeper Machame Route, Umbwe Route, Rongai Route and Lemosho Route.
