Umbwe route 7 days Kilimanjaro Climbing in 2023, 2024, and 2025
The 7-Day Umbwe Route is a truly difficult route because it is the shortest route with a high steep slope to climb the Kilimanjaro mountain and is widely regarded as the most difficult because it requires trekkers who are physically and mentally strong and fit. This route has a low altitude for acclimatization, though hikers must navigate challenging sections of rock and ice, using ropes and harnesses to safely ascend steep cliffs and narrow ridges. The 7-day Umbwe route is most unique for those hikers who seek unforgettable adventure. Book with us in 2023, 2024 and 2025
