6 Days Kilimanjaro climbing via Umbwe route

Umbwe Route.
The Mount Kilimanjaro Umbwe route is one of the shortest routes to the Southern Glaciers and the Western Breach. It is probably the most scenic, non-technical route on Mount Kilimanjaro. It is quite taxing, primarily due to the relatively fast ascent to Mount Kilimanjaro higher altitude, but the rewards are plentiful.

Fewer climbers, pristine mountain forest and shorter mountain walking distances make it a great option for fit mountain hikers. Add to your mountain climbing experience – an overnight in the crater!! Be one of a few fortunate mount Kilimanjaro climbers to spend a night in Africa's largest volcano.

This option is highly recommended, as this will be the only opportunity to get close to the beautiful and fascinating glaciers of Mount Kilimanjaro and to be able to visit the ash pit.

Day 1: Arusha Lava Caves

After breakfast, transfer to Marangu gate and then to Umbwe Village to start the climb. Climb for four hours through the rainforest to camp at the caves 2,800m above the sea level.

Day 2: Lava Caves Barranco Hut
After breakfast, continue ascent along a sharp ridge, giving a distinct high mountain feeling, then onto the Moorland Camp and arrive my mid afternoon. Stay at Barranco hut 3,900m.

Day 3: Barranco Hut Arrow Glacier
A four-hour walk past enormous breach walls to camp at the foot of the Arrow Glacier. A leisurely afternoon and evening, acclimatizing at around 4900m and watching the sunset behind Mt. Meru.

Climbing the same steep walls and scrambling up the screen and across the frozen lava on the tottering wall. We camp on the stunning crater rim of Kilimanjaro.
