The Rongai route begins on the northern side of the mountain, and is the least-traveled route. It is a long drive to the starting point, but you are rewarded by fantastic views and the likelihood that you will be the only climbers around. If you take this route up the mountain, you are obliged to descend via the Marangu Route which is the most popular and well-used route.
