Though Umbwe Route is one of the shortest routes up Kilimanjaro, it’s the steepest of all. Success rate is quite low on this end. Actually, due to the limited possibility of getting to the summit and the much determination and energy that one would require to manage it, the route is dubbed, ‘double whiskey,’ Due to the state of ascent, we only recommend it for experienced climbers who are used to very high altitudes.
Like on all the other routes, we will offer you a team of staff not only to give you company up the mountain, but also to offer you various services and assistance. These include professional climbing guides, cooks and porters.
Your pulse rate will be checked daily for health safety purposes even as you keep going up. Oxygen saturation is also checked to ensure you don’t harm yourself at the expense of leisure.
Once we confirm your booking, we will send you a packing list to assist you get ready for the climb.
