The Umbwe route is one of the most challenging routes to reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. The route can be done in five, six or seven days. We recommend it to be done in six or seven days so as clients can stay at Baranco for acclimatization and then they can go to lava tower in the next day which is 4600m.This route follows a forested ridge to the moorlands, and then traverse below the southern ice field to reach the Barafu route which is followed to the summit.
Arrival Day at Kilimanjaro International Airport
Pick up from the airport and transfer to accommodation in Arusha at Green Mountain Hotel/impala hotel for an overnight stay. You will meet your Kilimanjaro Guide who will have to ensure you have all the required gears for the hiking.
