Uhuro Peak is the peak of the mighty Kilimanjaro volcano, on which the human foot first opened the peak on October 5, 1889. The German Hans Mayer and the Austrian Ludwig Purtscheler were the first to conquer this peak. After that, all the climbers of the world, like crazy, began to gather in Tanzania, hoping to repeat the feat of the two famous climbers. No need to think that self-ascent of Kilimanjaro requires some special problems and experience, exposure to the climber, heavy equipment and various equipment. No, to reach the highest point belonging to the peak of Kibo – Uhuro Peak, you just need to have good physical fitness and, of course, endurance.
About the tour
From a bird’s eye view, you can clearly see how seven paths stretch to the foot of the Kibo peak, each of which has its own characteristics. For example, only five of them can be climbed on Kilimanjaro, and the Kilimanjaro National Park itself vetoed the descent along them, and the Mweka trail only allows descent from the top of the volcano. But no matter which way the climber climbs Kilimanjaro, he will still hit the path called the North and South Rings of Kibo. It is circular and connects all seven trails at an altitude of more than 4 km above sea level. If you are energetic, thirsty for adrenaline and dream of an unforgettable trip, we will help you organize your unforgettable climb to Kilimanjaro, which will be a real shock to the senses and emotions.
