The Umbwe route on Kilimanjaro
The fifth of five routes that we will talk about.
The Umbwe route is the shortest route on Kilimanjaro to get up to 4 000 m.
Very few people take this route, as the first couple of days you ascend very fast in altitude up to 4 000m, and that may pose acclimatization problems for your summit night.
This route however will be perfect if you combine your Kilimanjaro hike, with a hike up Mt. Meru prior to your Kilimanjaro trek, as the altitude advantage you gained by doing another mountain will no be lost.
At each camp you will be sleeping in tents, and your summit attempt will be via Stella point all the way up to Uhuru peak.
