This is the most beautiful route. The Machame route offers strictly tent camping. From late afternoon sunsets at Shira, to the misty protrusions of Kibo at the great Barranco Wall. There is an added benefit to taking an extra day, as you are afforded the most valuable commodity on the mountain –acclimation. The Machame route takes you high to Lava Tower (4630m) on the day 3 and brings you down by nearly 700m for an overnight at Barranco camp (3950m). This is the secret to successful acclimation.
