Day 3: Shira 2 to Barranco Hut (5-6 hrs)

Trek across the floor of the Great Barranco valley, crossing several streams, up to a huge boulder at the base of the Barranco wall. From the top of Barranco wall you will go down into the Karangu valley after 2 hours, where you'll overnight at Barafu Hut.

Day 5: Barafu Hut - Uhuru Peak (5 kms, 6-7 hrs)
Decent to Mweka Hut (12 kms, 4-7 hrs)
The trek involves between 10-15 hrs of walking, which is made even more strenous by the effects of altitude and extreme cold.

You start this day walking very early in the morning to see the sunrise at the crater rim and try to avoid the mist. Sunrise is at about 6.00 am and it takes 5-6 hours to get from Barafu Hut to the rim of Stella Point (5700m) plus another 1.5 hrs to Uhuru Peak.

The route from Barafu Hut joins the route from Gillman's Point, continue westward round the Kibo rim to reach Uhuru Peak (5896m).

Day 6: Mweka Hut - Mweka gate (10 kms, 3-4 hrs)
Descend steeply through forest on a narrow path along the crest on a broad ridge between two river valleys down to Mweka gate.

Option: You can add an extra acclimatization day, and stay at Barranco hut for two nights.
