Umbwe Route

Umbwe Route is not for the faint of heart.  It is a beautiful, but grueling steep direct assault up a wet, seldom used trail and will set you up for failure if you are not per-acclimatized (which can be accomplished on Mt. Meru, Mt. Kenya or Mt. Stanley).  We generally don’t recommend this route except for extremely fit and acclimatized trekkers.  Having said that; it has been done!

Umbwe can be done in 6 or 7 days.

Sample Route (6 Days):

The Crater Camp Supplement is available upon special request.  This adds one day to the route and will only be accommodated on a 7 day itinerary (8 days total on the mountain) for safety reasons.

The Western Breach Alternative finish is available upon specific request.  The sample itinerary listed above will be amended to accommodate.


Pricing is based on the number of climbers in the group and the number of days on the mountain.  Pricing below does not include non-mountain costs such as airport transfers and lodging.  Those costs can be found by clicking here.
