July 14 to July 21, 2014

Mt. Kilimanjaro Machame Day-6; Millenia Camp to Mweka Gate

The trek to Uhuru Peak is considered to be a relatively straightforward endeavour; however, ample time must still be provided for proper acclimatization to prevent altitude sickness. Some trekkers employ altitude-sickness medication, including acetazolamide, but taking at least seven days is the best way to avoid altitude sickness. Machame Route is highly recommended for its scenic value asidefor being very popular trail and fully catered camping. It has also great for acclimatization with lots of walk high, sleep low opportunities and a challenging trek with stunning scenery through 5 diverse climatic zones. Machame route is a good opportunity to split pre-summit day climb to leave climbers rested before summiting.
