Hike Kilimanjaro's only north side trail—the rugged and remote Rongai Route—on a thrilling 6-day camping adventure. Depart Arusha for the Rongai Trailhead to begin one of the mountain's most arduous journeys, geared toward fit individuals since it leaves little time for acclimating. Begin your ascent, trekking days through rainforest, heather and moorland toward Kibo's steep slopes. Cross over highland desert for a night at the Outward Bound hut and a midnight climb to the summit. Stop and view Hans Meyer Cave—named for the first westerner to summit Kilimanjaro—as you go.
