Best time to climb mt Kilimanjaro

The best time to climb Mount Kilimanjaro is during the dry seasons, which offer the most favorable weather conditions and higher chances of a successful summit. There are two primary dry seasons when climbing Kilimanjaro is recommended:

  1. January to March (Late January to early March): This is considered the first dry season. The weather is generally clear, with fewer clouds and minimal rainfall. Temperatures are relatively warm at lower altitudes but become colder as you ascend. This period is ideal for climbing, as the routes are less crowded, and you have a good chance of enjoying clear views from the summit.
  2. June to October (June to early November): This is the second dry season and is one of the most popular times to climb Kilimanjaro. June and July are particularly busy as many trekkers prefer to climb during the summer holiday season. The weather remains dry and stable, with cool temperatures at night. The clear skies during this period offer excellent visibility and stunning views during the trek.

It’s important to note that while these are the best times to climb Kilimanjaro in terms of weather, the mountain can be climbed year-round. However, outside of the dry seasons, you may encounter more rainfall, cloudy conditions, and increased challenges due to wet and slippery trails.

Additionally, being well-prepared for the altitude and having the appropriate gear and clothing are crucial regardless of the time of year. Always trek with a reputable and experienced tour operator who can provide guidance, support, and ensure your safety throughout the climb.
