Umbwe Route

UMBWE ROUTE - OVERVIEW

The Umbwe route is the shortest and steepest route up Kilimanjaro. It’s the least used trail, probably for its poor acclimatisation profile, and only 589 people climb it each year. Success rates via this route are lower than the average. The route approaches from the south and camping is the only available accommodation option. Pre-acclimatisation is recommended for those who choose to trek this route.

This route has great views, but it is the most difficult way to reach the summit. Altitude acclimatisation is difficult due to the fast ascent and the success rate is very low.

Difficulty: Low Distance: 73 km Duration: 6-7 days Success rate: Medium
