Rongai Route Climb/ Trek Overview
Kilimanjaro Climb Rongai Route is rapidly gaining popularity, and is considered to be one of the easiest routes up Mount Kilimanjaro. It is the only route starting from the north side of the mountain at Rongai, a small village close to the Kenyan border.


The climbing conditions are drier on the northern side of the mountain, and there are fantastic sweeping views over the broad flat Masai lands. Overnights are spent camping in tents. The summit is reached via the east side of Kibo and the descent is via the Marangu Trek.


Price Per Person : 1,400 US Dollars
