The Rongai provides spectacular views of the summit and its magnificent ice fields as we climb high above the plains. Our trek starts on fairly open slopes, where we may see widlife including buffalo and colobus monkeys. We ascend gradually as we contour through moorland towards jagged Mawenzi Peak, one of Kilimanjaro's three volcanic cones. Leaving the vegetation behind us we continue over rocky, boulder-strewn slopes and scree before reaching the summit. We then descend through thick rainforest to the south of the mountain. With an extra day spent ascending the mountain, this route is a great choice for trekkers wanting more time to acclimatise to the altitude.
