Full Day Acclimatization

Dedicate this day to acclimatization as you set out for Mawenzi, covering about 8 kilometers one way. The journey offers spectacular vistas of Mawenzi Peak and the surrounding landscapes.

Another Full Day Acclimatization

Continue your acclimatization process as you journey to Kibo Hut, situated at 4,703 meters above sea level. The route spans approximately 9 kilometers, taking around 4-5 hours.

Day 5: Kibo Hut to Summit and Back to Horombo Hut

Prepare for an early morning hike to Uhuru Peak, the highest point on Kilimanjaro. Biking is not feasible due to the challenging terrain, so you'll trek to the summit, savoring the sense of achievement as you reach this iconic peak. After summiting, descend to Kibo Hut for a brief rest before biking back to Horombo Hut. The dramatic altitude change is palpable as you return to a more comfortable level.
