One of the best routes on Kilimanjaro is the Northern Circuit, which offers nearly 360 degrees of breathtaking scenery, including the secluded, little traveled northern slopes. The Northern Circuit is the longest route on Kilimanjaro, allowing for the best acclimatization time and having the highest summit success rate.
The journey begins with a lengthy drive from Moshi or Arusha to Lemosho Gate as Mount Kilimanjaro is approached from the west. The first two s are spent making the trek from there through the rain forest to Shira Ridge and then across the Shira Plateau. The route then turns north and makes a clockwise loop from School Hut to Moir Hut to Buffalo Camp before ascending from the east.
|DEPARTURE/RETURN LOCATION||Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), Arusha Airport, (ARK/HTAR), Moshi and Arusha|

What is the success rate of the Northern Circuit route?

The success rate falls to 85% on average for the 6- itinerary.
