Pata Pata Tours and Travel


The footpath up to the summit are many, most of which take off from the southern slope of the volcano. The access roads from the northern slope are reserved for experienced mountaineers. The Mweka trail is the fastest way but it is steep and dangerous. The same can be said of the path Umbwe that is mainly used for the rapid descent on the way back. The path of Machame is one of the most spectacular, but does not offer many opportunities for shelter. The most convenient and also the most used by tourists, is the Marangu Road.
Climb the Kilimanjaro Marangu through the road does not require any special skills or equipment mountaineer. However, we recommend a good physical preparation, the support of a guide and porters, as well as the availability of at least 6 days time.
