More About Rongai Route

Acclimatization is done at mawenzi tarn for those hiking for seven days, which is highly recommended as there is less ‘climb high, sleep low’ option. Despite the fact that the route scenery is not as varied compared to other routes, rongai makes up for this by moving through wild area for almost the entire trail.
The route does not offer huts and the camps are less frequented but they have all the crucial facilities and a rangers hut. After reaching the summit descent is done through marangu route, which can be an upside as you get the Mount Kilimanjaro view from both sides.
