We descend steeply in the afternoon to our overnight camp in the Great Barranco Valley (3960 m), protected by high cliffs yet with expansive views of the plains below.

We continue towards the Karanga valley, passing under the Heim and Kersten glaciers. From here, we have a hard trek up from Karanga valley to Karanga camp, which is located at 3963 meters.

We’ll have a mid-afternoon acclimatization hike up to approximately 4200m for those who feel up to it before returning to camp for the night.

We started our hike to Barafu camp at 4640m after a nice night’s sleep and breakfast. We’ll be climbing over barren scree hills with no vegetation in sight. The altitude adds to the difficulty of the uphill trek.

We eat and relax when we get at camp in the afternoon as we prepare for a long night and day ahead. It’s critical to stay hydrated and warm. We have a late supper and then attempt to sleep since we’ll be up between 11 and 12 am. to begin the trek to the top.

The views to the craggy Mawenzi peak and beyond are magnificent, and we are surrounded by spectacular ice cliffs inside the crater. After another hour of trekking, we arrive at Uhuru Peak, the highest point on the mountain (5895m). We start our descent by returning to Stella Point, then descending on the scree slope and trail down to Barafu Camp for breakfast, before eventually arriving in Millennium Camp for a well-deserved rest.
