Climbing Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain itself is exciting, opting Northern Circuit trail makes it even more adventurous and life changing experience.

It gives enough time to acclimatize and allow the body to adjust with altitude hence rising chances to conquer the peak with fewer struggles in terms of physical exhaustion due to short distances covered daily.

Photography is none to compare as it offers view and scenery just breathtaking. Amazing dynamic look of the summit will leave one astonished only the camera lens will help as mere words can’t.  The trail starts from Lemosho gate as an entrance point to Mweka gate as an exit point. The route requires not less than Nine days (9) on the mountain and two nights at the hotel upon arrival and a night after climb making total of eleven (11) days
