About Machame

Known as the "Whiskey" route, the Machame route is presently the most famous route on the mountain. Contrasted and Marangu, the days on Machame are longer and the strolls are more extreme. The Machame route is viewed as a difficult route, and is more qualified for increasingly gutsy people and those with some hiking or exploring knowledge. The base number of days required for this route is six days, albeit seven days is suggested. You will climb through magnificent timberlands, through moorland zones rising to the Shira Plateau. Your trek will at that point take you through the Southern Icefields and onto the highest point of Uhuru Peak. The Machame route is grandly beautiful and shifted. However, because of the substantial groups, it loses a portion of its spendor. We will do Pre-Trip preparation and hardware check multi day prior, our guide will meet you anyplace inside an hour of Arusha/Moshi for the instructions and gear check.

Travel Tips

  • The amount of Oxygen on the top is only 50% as compared to the amount of Oxygen you are used to have. So pay attention to your body signals and inform your guide as soon as possible.
  • Choose the dry season to experience your trek the most.
  • If possible avoid taking pills like Diamox. It may show harmful side effects.
  • Pack the necessary gears and double-check the complete list.
