- Northern Circuit. The new route with few climbers has an excellent way to acclimatize and has beautiful scenery during climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
- Lemosho route. Fantastic Kilimanjaro beauty is seen and has the best acclimatization.
- Machame route. Has wonderful scenic views and good acclimatization, better if you take 7 days travel package.
- Rongai is another favorite option for trekking Kilimanjaro because hiking is not steep has a sense of wilderness scenery and only a trail with a panoramic view of Mawenzi’s rugged Volcano the peak at Saddle camp. Rongai trail is preferred if you want to climb in rainy months like April, May, and November. This is because on the northern side of Kilimanjaro there is little rain and usually drier than other Kilimanjaro routes. For elder people and even first-time climbers, the Rongai route is most recommended because has a gentle rise up, and a short time traverses to the Kibo Uhuru peak.
- Marangu is the first to be well established earlier than other Kilimanjaro routes. The Marangu route was used by the first European Explorers to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to the summit successfully. Hans Meyer was a German geology professor and the son of a wealthy editor from Leipzig, who hiked to the summit for the first time in 1889 successfully. Hans Meyer was accompanied by Ludwig von Purtscheller, an Austrian mountaineer, and a local guide Yohana Kinyala Lauwo. Yohana Lauwo was also a scout army and was appointed by Chagga Chief. Hans Meyer and Ludwig started their adventure journey from Mombasa where they first saw glittering mountain peaks from far away. Hans Meyer was the leader of the trek and he is the one who set up the first camps which then were modernized to be Mountain huts. Mount Kilimanjaro ascent through the Marangu route uses mountain huts as accommodation during the journey to the summit. All other Kilimanjaro trails depend on tented camps for overnight in the Mountain. Refer to german travel Magazine here.
