All your equipment and supplies are porter and a cook prepares all your meals. Where accommodation on the Marangu route is in huts, the Machame route offers strictly tents only. Total hiking distance: about 100 kms.

This makes Machame (also referred to as the "Whiskey route") better suited to the slightly more adventurous hiker, however rewarding him with a scenic splendor such as not seen on the Marangu route, from late afternoon sunsets at Shira, to the misty revelations of Kibo at the great Barranco wall, the Machame route is normally completed in a minimum of 6 days.

There is an added benefit to this, as you are afforded the most valuable commodity on the mountain acclimatization. The Machame route takes you high to Lava Tower (4630m)on the day 3 and brings you down by nearly 700m for an overnight at Barranco Camp (3950m). This is the secret to successful acclimatization.

Notes:
Airfare is not included in the tour price.
