Of the various routes to its permanently snow-capped summit, Machame is widely thought to be the most beautiful. The climb starts gradually through rain forest then skirts the main summit, ensuring that you get many different views of the summit and its neighbouring peaks. You make the final taxing ascent to Uhuru Peak (5895m) in the early morning to arrive for sunrise, before heading back down to celebrate your conquest and also helping the poor gain vision.
