Day 06 : Karanga Camp at (3,950 m) – Barafu Camp at (4,600 m)

After breakfast you will start ascending the most difficult part of this mountain for the entire crew “The Barafu camp”. The first still existing moorland gradually vanishes and the landscape becomes rocky, Stones and boulders are ruling this landscape. This is the last water stop for porters because they can’t access water at Barafu Camp (4,600 m).

Barafu means ice in swahili, this camp is situated on rocky, exposed ridge. Tents are much exposed to the wind as well as rocks so it is important for trekkers to be familiarized themselves with the environment around before dark. Spend the rest of the day having snacks and dinner later on. You should go to bed early enough and get a good sleep as you will be attempting the summit tonight. After dinner your guide will give you detailed briefing on how to prepare for the summit night.

The night is silent and freezing cold when you and your guide set out for the summit. The route to the summit is on the northwest & the scent is over the stone scree. It is at this point where majority of trekkers feels that this is the most physical & mental challenging part of their trek. Steeply up step by step and over the shoulders your path will lead you to the crater rim, to be reached after 5 to 6 hours and thus the Stella Point (5740 m).

Now, you only have 150 meters left to reach your goal. As the first rays of the day emerged you pass the Rebmann Glacier and proceed to Hans Mayer point.

Location Map

Mount Kilimanjaro Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and is located in northeastern Tanzania, near the border with Kenya. Here are some key facts and information about Mount Kilimanjaro.

Key Features:

Height: Mount Kilimanjaro's highest peak is Uhuru Peak, which stands at 5,895 meters (19,341 feet) above sea level. It is one of the Seven Summits, which are the highest peaks on each of the seven continents.

Volcanic Origin: Kilimanjaro is a massive stratovolcano that consists of three distinct cones: Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. Kibo is the highest and is dormant, while Mawenzi is also dormant but rugged and difficult to climb. Shira is the lowest and extinct.

Climbing Kilimanjaro:​ Climbing Kilimanjaro is a popular trekking and mountaineering destination. It does not require technical climbing skills, but it is a challenging high-altitude trek. The most common routes to the summit include the Marangu Route, Machame Route, Lemosho Route, and Rongai Route. The Machame Route is known for its scenic beauty.

Flora and Fauna: The mountain is home to a variety of unique flora and fauna. The lower slopes are covered in lush rainforests, while the upper slopes are known for their alpine vegetation. Kilimanjaro is also a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its rich biodiversity.

Cultural Significance:​ The Chagga people, who live around Kilimanjaro, have a strong cultural connection to the mountain. They refer to it as "Kilema Kyaro," which means "Mountain of Caravans."

Summit Experience: Reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro is a remarkable experience, with breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. The summit is marked by a sign at Uhuru Peak, and it is a popular destination for trekkers and mountaineers.

Visiting Lake Manyara: Lake Manyara National Park is a popular stop on many northern Tanzanian safari itineraries. It's approximately a 2-3 hour drive from Arusha, making it easily accessible. The park is open year-round, but the dry season (from June to October) is the best time for wildlife viewing. There are various lodges and camps in and around the park, offering accommodation options to suit different budgets.

Climbers typically need to arrange guided treks to ensure safety and proper acclimatization due to the high altitude. It's important to be well-prepared, physically fit, and take altitude sickness seriously when attempting to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
