Umbwe 6 Day via Western Breach Itinerary

+ 2 Days Of Pre And Post Hike Stay In Town

Umbwe Route 6 Days Itinerary Suitable for fit hikers only!

This is an extreme variation on the Umbwe Route, ascending via the Western Breach.

Tour Package Overview

This is a 6 day Kilimanjaro hike starting at Umbwe Gate and ascending via The Western Breach. Due to the relatively extreme nature of this trip there are generally less people than on other routes and if guests have altitude sickness they will not be allowed to ascend the breach. This is the 7 day version with a night in the crater - pre acclimatisation on Mount Meru is strongly recommended.

Please note: This route is inherently more dangerous than other routes for 2 reasons. Firstly, the amount of time spent at high altitude and accessing the western breach. This route should only be undertaken by fit individuals with experience of altitude and adventurous training.
