Umbwe is considered to be very difficult, taxing route - one that should only be attempted by strong hikers who are confident in their ability to acclimatize quickly to altitude. The Umbwe route has a well-deserved reputation of being the most challenging route on Mount Kilimanjaro. Although the number of people on this trail is very low, the chances of success are also low.
