1 Days Machame Route – Kilimanjaro Hiking Tour
The Machame route, also known as the "Whiskey" route, is the most popular and beautiful route to the top of Mt Kilimanjaro. Machame’s draw is in its scenic beauty. However, the trail is considered difficult, steep and challenging, particularly due to its shorter itinerary. Therefore, this route is better suited for more adventurous folks or those with some high altitude, hiking or backpacking experience. The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the south, beginning with a short drive from Moshi to Machame Gate.

This one-day trip involves going up to the first camp Machame camp 3000m and come back via the same route on the same day – there is a drive about 35km from Moshi, which will take 45 minutes – 1 hour, then at Machame get you to make registration and payment and get a valid permit. The hiking starts at Machame gate at 1800 and the distance to cover Machame camp is 11km (22km round trip) which will take 4-5 hours for each direction. All trekking inside of the Tanzania National Park requires the services of a certified Kilimanjaro guide, and the Machame route is one of the routes where short treks are allowed.
