The Machame Route
More difficult than the Marangu Route, the Machame Route is favoured by more experienced climbers and alpine walkers.

This route approaches the mountain from the south-west and provides climbers with spectacular views of Mt. Meru. Accommodation is in Spartan tents/camps and this route is best for those with a little more climbing experience.
