The Rongai Route is the only route that approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the north, near the Kenyan border. The route has low crowds and passes through remote wilderness areas. It is probably the only route where seeing wildlife in the first days is possible.
The exact trekking distance for the Rongai Route is 79 km and the shortest number of the days required for the route is 6 days.
The route is moderately difficult route but is highly recommended to those with less backpacking or hiking experience. The most important thing to note is that its flatter than the other Kilimanjaro treks and does not offer trekkers good options to climb high and sleep low
