From here the route follows a series of inclines and declines, skirting around the northern slopes of Kibo to Buffalo Camp (4,020 meters).The trek gives great vistas out across the plains that lie north of Kilimanjaro and stretch out to the Kenyan / Tanzanian border.

The route then continues east around the northern slopes to the Rongai Third Cave at 3,800 meters.

    Use this day for your acclimatization. Your body should already adopt the mountain environment by 7th day. However, if you feel you really want to add a day just to be sure you don’t mess up with the summit night, this will be a perfect day. We have noted that most of people finds it difficult to arrive to the camp and start the night ascend to the peak due to short rest time. Idea behind adding this day is to allow your body to relax before start to peak ascent.
