The Best 6 Days Machame Route on Mount Kilimanjaro | Climbing Specialist

6 days Kilimanjaro biking (Marangu route) Overview

This 6 days kilimanjaro cycling Marangu route is one of the best products for trekking the Kilimanjaro Mountain, and the Kilema route is the only one that is ideal for using a mountain bike to reach the summit. With good acclimatization, the entire journey to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro (5895 m) took 5 or 6 days. This activity enhances the experiences of tourists while offering minimum impact physical exercise and leisure usage of the natural environment. Visitors intending to reach the top will use the 19 km Kilema route, and bicycles will meet their porters at Horombo Hut before continuing to the peak. At Londorosi Gate or Moramu Picnic Site, non-summit tourists can bicycle to Moramu (a 44-kilometer ride).
