6 days Kilimanjaro Biking tour itinerary (Marangu route)

A full detailed Kilimanjaro biking tour day by day itinerary: Day 1: Moshi – Marangu Gate –Kilema Gate –Horombo Hut; Day 2: Full Day Horombo Acclimatization (Horombo Hut – Mawenzi Hut -Horombo); Day 3: Horombo Hut – Kibo Hut; Day 4: Horombo Hut – Kibo Hut; Day 5: Kibo Hut – Summit Then Horombo Hut; Day 6: Horombo Hut – Kilema Gate – Marangu Gate to Moshi

Day 01: Moshi – Marangu Gate –Kilema Gate –Horombo Hut

Meet your guide and embark on your transfer to the M15:00 p.m. Marangu gate, which takes about 45 minutes. The journey passes through the village of Marangu, which is located on the lower slopes of the mountain. Once you reach the park gate, all hikers are required to register at the park office. After signing in and registering at the Marangu gate, we drive to the Kilema gate. Upon arrival, you will ensure that you have all your daypack items (containing at least drinking water, your lunch pack, and extra clothing) and do a final check on your mountain bike. You will then start the first route section of 16 km (with your guide also on a mountain bike) from the Kilema gate (1,950 m) to the Horombo hut (3,705 m). Bikers with good fitness levels and mountain biking skills, subject to road conditions, will be able to cycle all the way to Horombo Hut. It is important to remember that the biggest cause of altitude sickness is ascending too quickly. We will be stopping regularly to give your body the maximum time to adjust to the higher altitudes. We will aim to reach Horombo hut at around 15:00pm. Dinner and overnight are at Horomo Hut.

Day 02:Full Day Horombo Acclimatization (Horombo Hut – Mawenzi Hut -Horombo)

After breakfast, you start your “cycling,” riding through the Alpine desert; in some areas, you will be riding on small stones up to Mawenzi Hut and back to Horombo Hut. Today, 90% of cyclists ride on “Alpine desert vegetation,” with a 10-kilometer cycling distance.

Day 03:Horombo Hut – Kibo Hut

After an early breakfast, meet your guide and start your ascent into the Alpine desert habitat. The first 3 km of the trail are very rocky, and cycling will be very difficult as this section is very stony and eroded. After about 3 km, the trail improves, and “cycling” will once again be possible. The “Saddle” (which refers to the area located between the peaks of Mawenzi and Kibo) is relatively flat, and cycling is much easier. However, high altitudes, low oxygen levels, and cold conditions make the 7-kilometer section towards Kibo Hut strenuous and challenging. The final km before reaching Kibo hut is especially strenuous. You will once again be reminded to slow down and drink enough water! Upon arrival at the Kibo hut, lunch will be served. After lunch, we will embark on an awesome Kilimanjaro downhill, descending nearly 800 m over 7 km. The final 3 km descent to Horombo Hut is extremely technical and difficult. Dinner and overnight at Horombo Hut

Day 04:Horombo Hut – Kibo Hut

We wake up early and make sure your duffel bags are packed and ready to go. After breakfast, you meet with your guide, and we will head back up to Kibo hut. Again, the first 3 km would require you to push and carry your bike a lot, with the final 7 km to Kibo hut offering a good biking trail. We will enjoy lunch and then aim to rest. At around 16h00, depending on how you feel, it is possible to hike partially up the summit path to orient yourself for the summit attempt later that night. Situated in the barren Alpine desert is Kibo hut, a stone-built block house that has bunk beds for 60 climbers but no streams with water nearby. There are platform toilets behind the hut. The summit (Uhuru Peak) is now a further 1195 meters up, and you will make your final ascent the same night. Prepare your equipment, thermal clothing, etc. for your summit bid. This should include the replacement of your headlamp and camera batteries, and make sure you have a spare set available as well. To prevent freezing, it will be wise for you to carry your water in a thermal flask. Go to bed around 19 h and try to sleep and rest as much as possible until 22 h. Dinner and overnight at Kibo Hut

Day 05:Kibo Hut – Summit Then Horombo Hut

At 4 am, you will be awakened by your guides to start the zigzag trek up the long screen slope. After roughly two hours, you should reach Hans Meyer’s Cave, and from here, the gradient gets steeper. Continue your climb for approximately another three hours to Gilman’s Point. You will take your bike from Porters and start riding to Uhuru Peak, arriving at Uhuru Peak, spending a few minutes or taking photos, and then riding down to Stella Point. After lunch, ride down to Horombo. Today, cycling from Kibo to Uhuru and then Kibo, 15% to 20% of the vegetation is alpine desert, and from Kibo to Horombo, 100% is alpine desert vegetation (Icecap). Dinner and overnight at Horombo Hut

Day 06:Horombo Hut – Kilema Gate – Marangu Gate to Moshi

After breakfast, you make your final ride down to Kilema gate, across the alpine and the rainforest, and then you will be transferred to Marangu gate for check-out and then to the hotel in Moshi. Dinner and accommodation in Moshi or Arusha
