How long does Machame route takes?


The Machame Route via Barafu traditionally persists for 6 days with 5 nights, however, it is fetching more common for climbers to opt for an additional night during the trekking, typically above the Karanga Camp. Not only does the additional day aid acclimatization but this also decreases from almost 6 to 3 number of hours trekking on the day that precedes the draining midnight climbing to the summit, so allowing hikers more time to recover their abilities, relax and prepare themselves for the final impulse to the top. The book has a full daily picture of this Route. If choosing the Western Crack Route, again this might be done in 6 days though you would be risky to do so – 7 is a much more workable length.
