Mountain cycling on Mt. Kilimanjaro

TANAPA has introduced this activity in Kilimanjaro National Parks. This activity provides physical exercise and recrea- tional use of the natural environment with minimum impact while enhancing visitors’ experience. Summit bound visitors will use Kilema route (19km) and cyclists will meet their porters at Horombo and continue to the summit. For non- summit bound visitors, cycling starts from Londorosi gate or from Morum Picnic Site then back to Morum (a 44km ride)
