8 days 7 nights Umbwe

Unlike the Marangu route, all other routes to Uhuru's Peak make use of tented accommodation. The Umbwe Route is renowned for its caves, one of which used to be used to provide climbers with their first nights shelter on the mountain. Today it is strictly prohibited to sleep inside the caves due to the slim risk of an earthquake.

The Umbwe route is one of the shortest routes 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. There are fewer people, pristine forest and the shorter yet steeper walking distances make it a great option for fit hikers.
