Barafu Camp to Summit to Mweka Camp (Full Board)
Wake up before midnight in the cover of darkness. We begin a steep climb over loose volcanic scree has some well-graded zig-zags and a slow but steady pace will take us to the rim of the main crater, Stella Point, at 5,735 meters. We will rest there for few minutes to enjoy the sunrise over Mawenzi. Those who are still feeling good can continue slowly to make the two-hour roundtrip from here along the crater rim to the main peak (5,895 meters), which is the highest point in Africa. After a few minutes to appreciate your accomplishment, we descend to Barafu amazingly fast. We stop at Barafu Camp for some refreshment, and then continue to descend to reach Mweka Camp.
Barafu Camp to Summit to Mweka Camp (3,100 meters); 13 to 15-hour walk.
