Highlights

  • The Machame route is often referred to as the "Whiskey Route" due to its challenging nature compared to the more popular Marangu route. However, it offers stunning scenery as it passes through diverse landscapes, including lush rainforests, moorlands, alpine deserts, and glaciated peaks.
  • The Machame route starts at Machame Gate, where trekkers begin their ascent through dense rainforest. As you ascend, you'll emerge onto the Shira Plateau, a vast expanse with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape and Mount Meru in the distance.
  • One of the most exhilarating sections of the Machame route is the climb up the Barranco Wall. This steep rock face requires some scrambling but rewards climbers with stunning views and a sense of accomplishment upon reaching the top.
  • Around the halfway point of the trek, you'll reach Lava Tower, a volcanic formation that stands at approximately 4,600 meters (15,091 feet) above sea level. Climbing to this height helps with acclimatization and provides awe-inspiring views of the surrounding landscape.
