Approaching Mount Kilimanjaro from the west, you take the comparatively new Northern Circuit Route, with a total trip time of nine days. The first three days of the ascent follow the Lemosho Route. The route then turns north and follows the northern flank of the mountain proper to where it meets the Rongai Route at Third Caves. Ascend to School Hut, join the Marangu Route and lead up to the summit via Gilman’s Point. After summit you descend back down the mountain via Mweka. You will have a private vehicle to take you to and from the mountain. Accommodation on the mountain on this trip will be in tented camps – a true adventure.
