Umbwe Route is the steepest, shortest and the most immediate route on Mt. Kilimanjaro. It is named as the most difficult course on Kilimanjaro also.
Umbwe Route is the least swarmed trek route on the mountain. Umbwe because of its lofty, consistent and straight move to the peak makes the odds of achievement on this course low.
The course is suggested for expert explorers or climbers who can adjust rapidly to height.
Be that as it may, the course with couple of trekkers, immaculate woods and strolling separations makes it an ideal trekking choice for fit trekkers.
Because of its quick gain in height the initial two days, it is one of the hardest and least secure Kilimanjaro courses. Climbers are remunerated with uncommon and shocking perspectives, less individuals, and shorter separations. In addition, you will appreciate seeing the astonished look on the essences of local people when you reveal to them that you rose by means of the Umbwe course.
The course starts from the south, before turning eastwards at Barranco Camp, the trail then transverses underneath the Southern Icefield before summiting from Barafu. The drops are made by means of the Mweka course.
This route is the hardest but most spectacular and direct way to reach Uhuru Peak.
An early start is made on the summit day to reach Stella Point, on the Crater Rim at dawn.
