Treks on Mount Kilimanjaro range from five to eight nights.
Shorter treks tend to have the following advantages and disadvantages ...
+ lower costs
+ lesser chance of simple fatigue
- significantly lower summit success rates
- much lesser altitude acclimatisation
- higher health risks
- busier and less scenic trails
- much higher trekker traffic on the first few days
Six night treks are rarely used since they tend to be an awkward longer version of a five night route or a seven night route which has been cut too fine. There are no routes which are optimum at six nights. However there are rare occasions when a six night trek can be the right option, notably for less fit and confident trekkers who specifically want to go very slowly on the first few days.
We offer the following six night trek ...Rongai 6p
... is a non-technical six night private trek, with second extra day added in for altitude acclimatisation, arguably the 'easiest' option on the mountain, but possibly a little dull on the first three days. It has a very good summit success rate of 89% and decent traffic avoidance, especially for departures Tue/Wed. The price range is USD 2200-3950 depending on the specification level and the number of trekkers.
