Unlike Marangu, all other routes to Uhuru's Peak make use of tented accommodation. The Umbwe Route is renowned for its caves, one of which actually was used provides climbers with their first nights shelter on the mountain. Today it is strictly prohibited to sleep inside the caves since it has caused death to some climbers due to slight earthquakes.

The Umbwe route is one of the shortest routes to the Southern Glaciers and the Western Breach. It is probably the most scenic, non-technical route on Kilimanjaro. It is quite taxing, primarily due to the relatively fast ascent to higher altitude, but the rewards are plentiful. Fewer people, pristine forest and shorter walking distances make it a great option for fit hikers. Add to your experience – overnight on the crater floor!! Be one of a few fortunate people to spend a night in Africa's largest volcano. This option is highly recommended, as this will be the only opportunity to get close to the beautiful and fascinating glaciers of Kilimanjaro and to be able to visit the ash pit.

How to reach there: Transfer from you hotel and drive from Moshi to Umbwe gate – 50 minutes with our 4WD land cruiser or minibus.

 

Mount Kilimanjaro been the highest point in Africa and the second in the World after the range of mountain Himalayas which makes the eight thousands high of Mountain Everest, Kilimanjaro is also the highest free standing mountain in the World (no range of mountains to support rather it has a forty {40} kilometers long base). While travelling to a foreign country one should expect to have an easy situation due to the following facts:-

1: The weather condition of your mother country in some degrees differs to the destination you will be.

2: The food and water you will be using will differ from home.

3: Jet lag
