From Horombo Hut there are two trails to the Saddle (the area between Kibo and Mawenzi which is almost 7 km). The right fork is very stony and eroded and is the most direct route to the Saddle and Mawenzi. From the Saddle (about 2 hours from Horombo), there are trails to Mawenzi Hut (1 hour) or Mawenzi Tarn Hut (2 hours) and across the length of the Saddle to Kibo Hut (3 hours). T he left fork from Horombo Hut is an easier trail and emerges on the Saddle much closer and passing THE LAST WATER POINT AT 4130 M to Kibo and about 1 km from Kibo Hut. The landscape now becomes rockier and rugged until the Saddle is reached. At Kibo Hut you shall get ready for your final preparations for the summit climb at midnight to take as much rest as possible before the midnight summit attempt.

    Hiking Time: 7 hrs Ascend – 8 hrs descend

    Distance: 17 kms

    Habitat: Stone Scree and Ice capped Summit.

    The trail to the summit lies directly behind Kibo Hut, to the west. It is normal to start this day’s climb at midnight. (The reason for this is to see the sun rise over Mawenzi from the top of Kibo, the loose stone scree is frozen –making it easier to climb, and you can get back in good time). The first part is an uneven trail, which leads to the Hans Meyer Cave at 5150 m, a good rest point. After that, the trail makes more regular switch backs most of the way to the top, with a last scramble over rocks to Johannes Notch and Gillman’s Point 5681 m at the crater rim where you need all your mental and physical strength as it is the steepest section of your trek. From there, the trail continues past Stella Point to Uhuru Peak at 5895 m the highest point of Africa. At the top there are stunning views of the ice walls offset by rugged rocks. After a fast descend to Kibo Hut for a meal and rest, continue to descend to Horombo Hut..
