Where is it?
Mount Kilimanjaro and the associated Kilimanjaro National Park are located in the northern regions of Tanzania, straddling the border with nearby Kenya. At 5,896m (19,336 feet), Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa.
The most popular climb is the "Marangu Route" or tourist route as it is known locally. It is usually the cheapest option with the best facilities but is more trampled than any of the other routes. Go to a list of Kilimanjaro Climbs for other route options.
What is the best time of year to go?
The higher slopes of the mountain are always cold. The town of Moshi is low lying and hot by day, cool by night althought it can be quite humid. The climbs can be done anytime of the year although it is much more difficult during rainy season specifically March through to May.
How to get there
The hikes start and end at the Keys Hotel in Moshi. Additional transfers and extensions are easily organised and many climbers continue onwards to enjoy a safari or some time on the beach.
You'll need a transfer from Arusha town in Tanzania to Moshi at the start and the end of the climb.
