9 Days Kilimanjaro Northern Circuit Route

Booking Now


The Northern Circuit Route is the newest and longest route on Kilimanjaro, taking 9 days to complete. It is considered to be the most scenic and least crowded route, with stunning views of the mountain and surrounding landscape. Experienced trekkers may opt for the more difficult 9 days ascent along the Northern Circuit. After reaching the summit, you will descend by the Mweka trail, rather than retracing your steps along the ascent route. The trail then joins the Rongai and Marangu routes in the east for the final summit ascent via Gilman’s Point.

Arrive in Tanzania: You will be picked up from the airport and transferred to your hotel in Moshi or Arusha, where you will have a pre-climb briefing with your guide and have a chance to rest before the climb.
