Wake at about 12:30am to a light snack and begin the summit climb. The winding switchbacks climb slowly toward the crater rim and Stella Point (approx. 18’500ft). From Stella Point, one can see the inner crater and the ash cone not to mention the amazing glaciers covering the South face of Kilimanjaro. Continue another half hour to the rooftop of Africa – Uhuru Peak at 19’340ft. Stop for a bit of rest and photo opportunity. Views of Mawenzi to the east and Mount Meru to the west as well as the rift valley, northern Tanzania, and southern Kenya are breathtaking. At this range, Kilimanjaro glaciers are as awe-inspiring as they are pristine. After a rest, descend back to Barafu hut campsite, break camp and descend to Mweka hut campsite at 9’850ft elevation. Set up camp, eat dinner and get some well-deserved rest. A long day of hiking totaling to approximately 12- 14 hours, depending on the fitness of the climber. Overnight at Mweka Hut Campsite.
