There are six established routes to climb Mount Kilimanjaro – Marangu, Machame, Lemosho, Shira, Rongai and Umbwe. The Marangu, Machame, and Umbwe route all approach from the south of the mountain. The Lemosho and Shira routes approach from the west. The Rongai route approaches from the north. All routes except Marangu and Rongai descend via the Mweka route.
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro via The Umbwe Route
This route is the steepest with the shortest and most direct routes to the Southern Glaciers, Western Breach and Uhuru Peak. It is probably the most scenic, non-technical route on Kilimanjaro. However it is quite taxing, primarily due to the relatively fast ascent to higher altitudes, but the rewards are plentiful. The very steep route is best suited to experienced trekkers.
Duration: 6 – 7 days.
Difficulty: Very High
Scenery: Very good
Traffic: Very low
This route is not used much. The Umbwe route is only suitable for people with extensive mountain climbing experience.
Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will be met and transferred for overnight accommodation at Qwine Hotel B&B. Your head guide will meet you for your briefing, gear check and arrange for you to hire any equipment you may need.
