The Umbwe Route is the most difficult route but very short. This route is less traveled by Mount Kilimanjaro climbers.
This route was before used to pass through Western Breach and Arrow’s Glacier path to the summit. But due to a tragic rock fall, the approach via the Western Breach closed.
One (1) year later reopened but due to its difficulty and safety risks, it is not well recommended. Instead, the Umbwe Route now joins the Machame Route at Barranco camp. This route offers a six days or seven days climb for Mount Kilimanjaro.
