Kilimanjaro National Park gate (1,840 m). You might be lucky to catch
a glimpse of the thumbless black and white colobus monkeys scrambling
through the lush vegetation. Approximately 4 hours later, you will
reach your destination for the day, the Mandara Hut. After a
well-earned rest, your guide will take you to the Maundi Crater where
you can enjoy wonderful views of the Kenyan interior. You will spend
your evening meal and overnight stay at Mandara Hut (2670 m).
Mandara Hut (2,700 m) – Horombo Hut (3,700 m)
This day continues through the heather to the edge of the short
cropped moorland plains to Horombo Hut at 3,760m, from where Moshi
township and the Pare ranges can be seen on a clear night. From the
hut you will have fantastic views overlooking Mawenzi, Kibo peak and
the Masai steppe. You will spend your evening meal and overnight stay
at the Horombo Hut.
Horombo Hut (3,700 m) – Zebra Rocks (3,980 m) – Horombo Hut (3,700 m)
After a relaxing breakfast, you will set off on a 2 to 4 hour trek to
Zebra Rocks (3,980 m). The distinctive black and white stripes give
the rock formation its name. On your return to Horombo Hut, a cooked
lunch will be waiting for you. You can relax in the afternoon and
regain your strength for the hike the following day. You will spend
your evening meal and overnight stay at the Horombo Hut.
Horombo Hut (3,700 m) – Kibo Hut (4,700 m)
Today’s destination is Kibo Hut and it should be reached in about 5 to
6 hours. This stage is long and tough and you will pass plantless
plateau which links the summit of Kibo with Mawenzi.
Kibo Hut (4,700 m) – Uhuru Peak (5,895 m) – Horombo Hut (3,700 m)
You will start the journey in the middle of the night when the lava
ash is still frozen and walking on it is easier. You will begin the
long and strenuous trek to the summit in the dark. Passing the Hans
Meyer cave at 5,200 m, the climb slowly but surely goes upwards. At
sunrise, you will reach Gilman’s Point (5,715 m) on the crater rim.
Soon you will have forgotten the cold of the night and after another 1
to 2 hours, you will reach Uhuru Peak at 5,895 m. The descent follows
the same path and the lava ash will now have thawed and allows for a
fast descent. On your return to Kibo Hut, a warm meal awaits you and
you can rest a while to regain your strength. After the 1 to 2 hour
break, you will be on your way down to the Horombo Hut (3,700 m) where
you will arrive in the afternoon. The evening meal as well as
overnight will be spent there at Horombo lodge.
Horombo Hut (3,700 m) – Marangu Gate (1,860 m) – Moshi
The last stage passes through the heather and moor zone to the Mandara
Hut (2,700 m) where a cooked lunch awaits you. Soon you will again be
in the lush tropical rainforest and after about 6 hours of trekking,
you will be back at the Kilimanjaro National Park gate (1,860 m).
