There are many different routes leading to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. The map below shows each of the routes that can get you to the summit.

The Route our group chose to take was the Machame Route. Below is the map showing that route with each of its camps. Below are the details about each day including altitude in meters and feet, average trekking time and importaint points along the way.

Hike up from the trailhead to the Machame Camp @ 9,775 ft.

Hike up from Machame Camp to Shira Camp @ 12,600 ft.

Hike up to Lava Tower @ 15,190 ft and back down to 12,600 ft at Baranco Camp.

Hike up to Barafu High Camp at 14,925 ft. We rest one day at Barafu Camp.

Unfortunately, I did not get to see the last day of the climb because I got wheel barrowed of the mountain. But I'm coming back and going to do it right!
