Rongai route features are remote, less frequented, some gentle climb, wild, least scenic, camping and good for acclimatization.

Kilimanjaro trek to Uhuru Peak is considered to be a relatively straight forward adventure; however, ample time must still be provided for proper acclimatization to prevent altitude sickness.

Rongai route is among the three shortest routes, Rongai and Machame are less challenging and are often trekked by individuals with limited mountaineering experience
