About 7 Days Umbwe Route for Kilimanjaro Climbing Tour package

The short and steep Umbwe path is considered the most difficult climb on the Mountain. Climbers may find this path intriguing because it has less traffic. It does, however, have one of the lowest summit success percentages because of its fast trek up Mount Kilimanjaro. As a result, this route is only suitable for experienced hikers who are confident in their abilities to adapt. Climbs along this route are usually completed in six to seven days. Following the Southern Circuit beneath Kilimanjaro's Southern Ice Field before summiting from Barafu, the trail turns east after passing past Barranco Camp. The descent follows the Mweka Route.
