Overview

This is the steepest route up or down Kilimanjaro, thus those few people who use this route do use this route to descend rather than ascending . The route also offers scenery. Umbwe route is usually recommended for descent only. Hardly anyone climbs it. It is extremely steep and offers incredible views of Kibo, the Great Western Breach (a huge stone mass protruding from Kibo) and the Baranco.

Umbwe route is the hardest but most magnificent and shortest way to reach Uhuru Peak. A Less-frequented route, which is very steep and suitable only for experienced trekkers.Additional days can be added to our programme to discover or lighten up along the route or camp in the Karanga valley.
