The easiest way to climb Kilimanjaro is take more time!! and come physically prepared. Having climbed Kilimanjaro 23 times to date, you need to have more time in your acclimatization plan to be successful. Yes if you have 3 or 4 trips to high altitude above 4,500m/ 14,763 feet. you can consider a 7 day climb.
For everybody else you need to join an 8 day climbing trip on Kilimanjaro.
