Very early in the morning (midnight to 2 am), we continue our way to the summit between the Rebmann and Ratzel glaciers.

From Stella Point, you may encounter snow all the way on your 1-hour ascent to the summit. Once at Uhuru Peak you have reached the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the continent of Africa!
