  • DAY 1: LONDOROSSI GATE (2,100 METERS) – START POINT 2,360 METERS TO MTI MKUBWA CAMP (2,820 METERS)

    The Northern Circuit Route begins at Londorossi Gate (2,100 meters) in the West. Registration with the Kilimanjaro National Park authorities occurs at the gate and then you will be driven further up the mountain to the trail head starting point.

    DAY 2: MTI MKUBWA CAMP (2,820 METERS) TO SHIRA CAMP 1 (3,610 METERS)

    On day two you will spend the first hour trekking through the last section of rainforest path before entering the low alpine moorland zone which follows up onto the Shira Plateau. 

    DAY 3: SHIRA CAMP 1 (3,610 METERS) TO MOIR CAMP (4,200 METERS)

    Day three is a long trek heading east which passes through the ‘Garden of the Senecios’ and then enters the high alpine desert zone. The morning is spent trekking up to Lava Tower and the iconic Shark’s Tooth rock formation at 4,600 meters, where you will have lunch.

    DAY 4: MOIR CAMP (4,200 METERS) TO BUFFALO CAMP (4,020 METERS)

    Day four involves a moderately steep climb out of Moir Valley. Trekkers can take a small detour here to climb the summit of Little Lent Hill at 4,375 meters before returning to the Northern Circuit trail. 

    DAY 5: BUFFALO CAMP (4,020 METERS) TO RONGAI THIRD CAVE (3,800 METERS)

    Day five starts with a climb up the Buffalo ridge and down into Porfu Camp where lunch is usually served. The trek is shorter than the day before and by now you should be feeling well acclimatized to the altitude. 

    DAY 6: 3RD CAVE (3,800 METERS) TO SCHOOL HUT (4,800 METERS)

    On day six after breakfast you begin your way to Barafu Summit Camp (4,640 m), the starting point for a night summiting Uhuru Peak (5,895 m). The climb will take us across desolate scree slopes with no vegetation around us at all. 

    DAY 7: SCHOOL HUT (4,800 METERS) TO UHURU PEAK (5895METERS) TO CRATER CAMP (5,790METERS)

    Wake before dawn to start your summit approach. You’ll reach Uhuru Peak in the early afternoon, when few groups are around. A short descent brings you to Crater Camp, set in soft sands near the famed Furtwangler Glacier. 

    DAY 8: CRATER CAMP (5,790M) TO MILLENNIUM CAMP (3790M)

    Wake before dawn to start your summit approach. You’ll reach Uhuru Peak in the early afternoon, when few groups are around. A short descent brings you to Crater Camp, set in soft sands near the famed Furtwangler Glacier. 

    DAY 9: MILLENNIUM CAMP (3790METERS) TO MWEKA GATE (1630METERS)

    We begin our descent by returning to Stella Point and then descending on scree slope passing Barafu camp for a short break before heading down to Millennium Camp for a long well-earned rest. If you fly back home our vehicle will be ready to take you to the airport at your time
