Tour Details
The Umbwe route is deserved to be considered as the most challenging route and that should be attempted by strong and real adventurer team. This is because the trail is not well opened due to low traffic. The route does not give necessary stage to acclimatization due to the fast ascent to high altitude which may lead to altitude sickness. The success rate to this route at Climb Safe Kilimanjaro is 85%. The Umbwe route start with short drive from Moshi town to Umbwe gate where the hikes begins, later join with Machame, Lemosho and Shira route at Baranco and head to East south at Barafu camp before summit. Its first day is covered with real adventure experience on a thick, health forest and wet trail. We offer this route for private hike only and can be climbed in 6 days or one can choose 7 days for better off acclimatization day spent at Baranco Camp.

Our day starts by descending into the start of the Great Barranco, a huge ravine. We then exit steeply, up the Great Barranco Wall, which divides us from the southeastern slopes of Kibo. It’s a climb over rock, not technical but long and tiring. Passing underneath the Heim and Kersten glaciers, we head towards the Karanga valley. From here we have a steep climb up from Karanga valley to our night’s camp at Karanga camp, set at 3963m.

It’s a tough steep walk made more difficult by the altitude. On arriving at camp, we eat and spend the afternoon resting as we prepare for a long night and day ahead. It is important to keep hydrated and warm. We have an early dinner and then try to get some sleep as we will be getting up at between 11pm and 12pm to start the climb to the summit.
