Machame Route on Mount Kilimanjaro is well known as “Whiskey Route” –

The eight days seven nights Machame variation is the ideal schedule for this route. On the 7 nights 8 days Machame Route, the trek from Barranco Camp to Barafu Camp is broken up in to two days, allowing for a short day just prior to Uhuru Peak attempt. This is very important for the climbers because the summit day starts very early, around midnight, so climbers are sleep deprived going into the toughest day on the mountain. By having a short day before hand, trekkers can be better rested.
