6 days Kilimanjaro climb via Umbwe route
Umbwe route Is the most scenic but is recommended only for experienced climbers. It starts with a quick ascend, so it provides very little time for acclimatization. It is located at the southern part of the mountain and referred to whisky route because of its steep ascend. It can be climbed in 6 to 7 days. To get to Umbwe gate at 1600m you have to drive to Machame gate first to get your entry permit and then you have to drive about 30km back to Moshi and take a diversion left to Umbwe village. Compared to other routes Umbwe does not provide enough time for acclimatization because from beginning it’s very steep.
