We did the Machame route. It was not as hard as expected. I didn't take any drugs (Diamox etc.) and felt relatively strong. No headache or other altitude related problems, just a slight dizziness. The important thing is to take it slow and steady, don't rush. I did for a couple of minutes, and spent the next 20 minutes recovering. We were a group of 6 people. 5 of us made it to Uhuru Peak, and one turned back at Stella Point.
