Being the most difficult path up Mount Kilimanjaro, the Umbwe route has earned its name. This route does not give the essential acclimatization stages because of the quick rise to high altitude. The odds of success are similarly quite slim despite the extremely low number of trail users. Only strong hikers who are confident in their capacity to swiftly adapt to altitude should undertake the Umbwe route because it is regarded as being exceedingly demanding and strenuous.
The Umbwe path is a quick, steep, and direct ascent when coming from the south. Before climbing to the summit from Barafu, the trail bends east after passing Barranco Camp and travels through the Southern Ice Field of Kilimanjaro. Ascent is produced.

What is the success rate of the Umbwe route?
