Machame Route

MACHAME ROUTE

Phsically the machame route differs form the marangu route reffering to th main force of kibo's volcanic activity which occured out towards the west of the machame route and so machame is steeper especially on the first day and a half of the climb and more rugged compared to the marangu route.

The route starts of from the machame village to the first camp the is 3000m which meets the forest which continues across moorlands to the shira camp site which offers excellent views on to the shira plateau. Towards the summit you shall follow a usual track of the shira route to get to the lava tower which then rejions with umbwe route and then ascend to the much steeper route via arrow glacier which then continues on to the trail to the ascent of the summit and then descends through the mweka route
