an early evening meal followed by an early night as the night will be short

Day 6: Kibo Hut (4700m) - Uhuru Peak (5895m) - Horombo Hut (3700m)

Stop At: Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro National Park 00255 Tanzania
Today is the great day - Summit day! This begins at night because the lava ash is still frozen and so
the ascent is easier. Your guide wakes you around 11pm, and an hour later the long and strenuous
way to the summit begins. Passing the Hans Meyer Cave at 5220m, the climb slowly but surely
ascends. At sunrise, you will reach Gillman’s Point (5681m) – the crater rim of Kilimanjaro – where the
sun will slowly start to warm up the land. You quickly forget the coldness of the night and will reach the
Uhuru Peak at 5895 meters after another 1-2 hours. Congratulations! You‘ve made it to the "Roof of
Africa". Enjoy this moment... The route back down follows the same path; the lava ash will now have
thawed, which allows for a fast descent. On your return to Kibo Hut, a warm meal awaits you and you
can regain your strength. After a 1-2 hour rest, you will continue to Horombo Hut (3700m) where you
will arrive in the afternoon. After an evening meal, most mountain conquerors understandably retire
early to bed !
