Day 1: Marangu Gate to Kilema Gate to Horombo Hut

Your journey starts at Marangu Gate, where you will get on your bike and start heading towards Kilema Gate. This leg of the trek covers approximately 15 kilometers and takes around 4 hours. As you climb, the landscape changes from dense rainforest to moorland, providing glimpses of native wildlife. You will rest at the Horombo hut, located at 3,720 meters above sea level, and allow your body to adapt to the altitude. Expect chilly temperatures as night falls, but the warmth of the Hut will keep you cozy.

The full day acclimatization

Today, you will embark on a day-long rehabilitation journey to Mawenzi. The trail is approximately 8 kilometers one way, offering great views of Mawenzi Peak. You will return to Horombo Hut in the afternoon, where you can relax and enjoy the surrounding alpine vegetation. Oxygen levels here are lower than at lower altitudes, so it's important to keep acclimatizing.

Day 3: Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut

Leaving Horombo Hut, you will trek to Kibo Hut, located at 4,703 meters above sea level. This leg of the journey is 9 km long and takes about 4-5 hours.

Your stay at Kibo Hut ensures that you are well-rested and ready for the summit push.

Day 4: Kibo Hut to the Peak and back to Horombo Hut

The climax of your adventure comes when you start climbing early in the morning to Uhuru Peak, the highest point of Kilimanjaro. Cycling is not possible here due to the steep terrain, so you will continue on foot. You will reach the summit after a challenging journey, where you can enjoy the triumphant feeling of standing on the "Roof of Africa." Return to Kibo Hut for a short break before cycling to Horombo Hut. A significant elevation change will be noticed as you descend to a better level.

Day 5: Horombo Hut to Marangu Gate

The last leg of your journey takes you from Horombo Hut back to Marangu Gate, covering about 20km in an exciting downhill journey.
