Day 2

Arusha to Marangu Gate

We depart Arusha and ride to the Marangu Gate to complete the necessary registration formalities. The climb begins from Marangu Gate (6,000 ft). The trail then begins to climb consistently, but gently through an attractive forest that shelters a variety of wildlife, including the blue monkey. The forest begins to thin out as we approach the first camp—Mandara Hut (8,800 ft).

These are two of the three volcanos that make up the summit of Kilimanjaro. We camp at Horombo Hut (12,200 ft) for the night. 6-8 hours · 5.7 miles · elevation: +3,400 ft.
