Umbwe is the least travelled route and is considered the most difficult with the lowest success rates. Although a short route (approaching from the south between the Machame and Marangu routes), it is a constant, steep climb to the top which gives little opportunity to acclimatise. Umbwe is ideal for experienced trekkers looking a challenging climb on a secluded route. mtkenyamapbig
