Machame route up, Mweke route down. Very beautiful. I recommend taking as few porters as possible and carrying your own gear. My friend and i were probably the only ones on the mountain doing that, but it made it much more worthwhile to lug a 45lb pack up as opposed to a 10lb day pack. the porters think you're crazy, but i'm sure they loved us for it.
