Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing 5 Days / 4 Nights -
Many climbers use this route to descend instead of ascend. Either way it is after Mweka the next steepest route. It is also quite scenic and relatively infrequently used.
After an early morning pickup at your hotel in Arusha or Moshi we will drive along the main Moshi-
From the bivouac or camp, the trail will continue up the ridge to the end of the beeline, and follow the cairned path to the Barranco Hut/Camp.
From Barranco Hut we can go west to Shira Plateau and the Northern Circuit or up to Lava Tower Hut and the summit via the Great Western Breach and Arrow Glacier camp. Or if the altitude is too intense and/or you don't wish to do a summit ascent, you can also go eastwards on to the Southern Circuit.
From Barranco Camp we make an early morning rise to Kibo Crater and on to Uhuru Peak. From there we can descend the same trail or Mweka to camp.
Depending on the decent we leave the Bivouacs or Mweka Camp for the trail head where you will be picked up for transfer back to your hotel in Moshi or Arusha before dinner.
