his is the most remote route to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro. After taking you though beautiful forests and moorlands, it crosses the Shira Plateau to meet up with the Machame Route. The South Circuit is then followed, offering superb views of the Southern Ice fields, past the Barranco Hut and then on to Barafu and the summit. This is the only route that you will be able to see the three peaks of Kilimanjaro (Shira,Mawenzi and the Kibo peak here the summit is).
The route can be done in seven or eight days. We recommend the eight days as it gives you more time to acclimatize and leave you relaxed and enjoy the trekking all the time.
Arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport
