This trek takes you on the popular Marangu route, which uses comfortable trekking lodges for the overnight accommodation. You'll be climbing for six hard and breathless days to reach the summit so you better be fit. We recommend you do plenty of training before undertaking this challenge, but when you reach the summit the spectacular views out across the African landscape will make all the hard work and pain worthwhile.
