What to Expect

While a 6-day Rongai Route climb is possible, it’s important to keep in mind that this is a faster pace and might increase the risk of altitude-related issues. Adequate physical preparation, prior high-altitude trekking experience, and careful monitoring of your body’s response to altitude are crucial. Choosing a reputable trekking company and following their advice can greatly contribute to your safety and success on the climb.

As always, consider extending the trek to allow for more acclimatization time if you’re concerned about altitude sickness. Your health and safety should always be a priority.
