Rongai Route

Rongai Route

Overview

The Rongai Route is the only route that connects Kilimanjaro from the north, and is close to Kenyan border. The ascent profile of Rongai Route is very similar to that of Marangu. It is one of Kilimanjaro’s easier routes to summit as the climb to the top is gradual and steady. Unlike Marangu, this route experiences fewer crowds and passes through remote wilderness areas. It is probably the only route where you can witness the wildlife in the first days of acclimatization.

The Rongai route connects Kilimanjaro from the north-eastern side of the mountain, alongside the border between Tanzania and Kenya. Holding a sense of perfect wilderness, it offers a different perspective on Kilimanjaro by approaching from the north.

The climbing high and sleeping low principle is not applicable here due to the topography of the route. The hikers may suffer from the altitude sickness as compared to other routes.
