Barafu [ 2 albums ]

sep-2012 [ 2 ]

d5-Karanga Camp to Barafu Camp-4630m

Slowly trek (7 hours) to Barafu Camp (4600m). 

From Barafu you will have excellent views of Kibo and Mawenzi peaks. Barufu Camp is situated on an exposed ridge, so it is necessary to familiarise yourself with the terrain before dark. We acclimatize and make necessary preparation for the summit day ahead.

d6-Barafu to Summit to Mweka Camp-5895m

Tonight is the night! 

A midnight start to conquer the highest point in Africa. This section of the route is considered one of the steepest on the non-technical paths of Kilimanjaro. 

It is a 6-7 hour hike to Stella Point in order to see the sunrise. 

From Stella Point it is a 1 hour to Uhuru Peak and the rooftop of Africa. 

We then descend down to Mweka Camp. It going to be a very long day!
