6 days Umbwe route Hiking Kilimanjaro
The Umbwe route has a well-deserved reputation of being the most challenging route on Mount Kilimanjaro. Due to the fast ascent to high altitude, this route does not provide the necessary stages for acclimatization.

Day 1: Umbwe Gate to Umbwe Camp
When we arrive at the Umbwe Gate, we make sure that we finish the registration paperwork and prepare the expedition gear.

Day 2: Umbwe Camp to Barranco Camp
The trek begins steep as we ascend higher into the heath zone. Here landscape changes quickly to sparse vegetation, rocky outcrops and giant heathers.

Day 3: Barranco Camp to Karanga Camp
Our first challenge is a climb and scramble over the volcanic rock of the 1,200 ft Barranco Wall. On reaching the top, we have a well-earned lunch break and enjoy fantastic views of Barafu and Mount Meru.

Day 4: Karanga Camp to Barafu Camp
After breakfast, we leave Karanga and hit the junction which connects with the Mweka Trail. We continue up to Barafu Hut.

Day 5: Barafu Camp to Uhuru Point to Mweka Hut
Very early in the morning (midnight), we put on many layers of clothing and begin our climb to the summit.

Day 6: Mweka Camp to Moshi
After breakfast we continue the descent down to the Mweka Park Gate to receive your summit certificates.
