About this tour

Machame is another popular route where you will have to camp through all of the nights. (There are not huts, but there are public toilets people can use) This 7 day trek will give you one day to acclimatize and will give you a better chance to get to the summit.

The route changes its atmosphere each day you ascend. You will definitely enjoy all of the change you will see along the way.

The last day will be the toughest. Be ready :)
