Rongai Route Trekking: Overview

Why Choose Rongai Route?

The Rongai Route is the only route thathikes from the north, the hike is from the south-east and you can see both the sides of the mountain on your Mount Kilimanjaro Hike. You can hike through this beautiful and make the most of your Kilimanjaro trip.

The main advantage is it is the easiest route and one of the quieter routes. It approaches the mountain from the drier side and has the best chances of good weather. The disadvantages are; higher costs due to additional travel, considerably less scenic.

Why the Rongai Route is so popular?

On the Rongai Route,the extra cost makes this route a bit more expensive. This route has an easy hike profile as Marangu route and it rises steadily, there aren’t any steps involved and also no ups and downs. With a good operator, you have an 80% chance to make it to the crater rim and 70% to make it to the Uhuru peak. The Rongai Route Success Rate increases immensely when you travel with Serac Adventures! The Rongai Route Cost is $1600 per person, for a Rongai Route 6 Days Package....

If you have trekking experience your chances are good to make it to the summit and some come down due to weather and altitude problems. The Rongai Route has another advantage; the northern side of Kilimanjaro is a lot drier than the other side. Your chances not to get soaked on the first day are excellent.

Accommodation on the trek is camping throughout in roomy mountain tents shared by two people. Guides leading the trek always walk along with the hikers and closely monitor the trekker’s adjustment to altitude. All your equipment will be carried by local porters on the mountain; you only carry a day-pack with personal gear. When camping on our Mount Kilimanjaro Hike you will not have to participate in camp chores. We buy fresh produce locally and to ensure good standards of hygiene all food is prepared by our staff and can cater for special dietary requirements and there are no extra food-kitty payments.
