Umbwe Route :

This route is the hardest but most spectacular and direct way to reach Uhuru Peak.

It follows a forested ridge to the moorlands, then traverses below the Southern Icefields to reach the Barafu Route which is followed to the summit.

An early start is made on the summit day to reach Stella Point, on the Crater Rim at dawn.
Uhuru Peak lies a further 40 min. along the rim.


Accommodation on the mountain is in tents which the porters will pitch for you.

You will need a sleeping bag, warm clothes and walking poles.

This is a steep, tough and in places slightly exposed trek within the limits of a fit individual used to walking in mountain areas.


An extra day can be added to our itinerary to explore or relax along the route, (best taken at the Barranco Hut).
