Mweka gate is an exit point from the Kilimanjaro national park for hikers using the Mweka route. Exit point because the Mweka route is used by descending hikers only, thus hikers can only exit and not enter through Mweka gate. There are few park authorities offices onsite and the gate lies on the edge (but inside) of the park's rain forest region.

Most hikers exiting at Mweka gate would be those that are coming from Millenium campsite or Mweka hut. Mweka gate is used as an exiting point by more than half of the seven hiking routes, namely the Northern circuit, Lemosho, Shira, Machame and Umbwe routes.

Location of Mweka gate

Mweka gate is located on the southern border of mount Kilimanjaro near Uru west ward, of Moshi rural district.
