The Umbwe Route is regarded as the hardest route up the Mountain: not because it is technical, but because it is the steepest. The route also has some of the most spectacular and dramatic views on the Mountain. This route usually uses the Barafu Route via Stella Point to reach Uhuru Peak. Or you can choose to use the daunting Western Breach Route. You descend the mountain using the Mweka Route.The Umbwe Route is steeper and shorter than the Machame Route. Once you are at the Barranco Hut you continue on with the other Machame climbers.
