Today we will awake for a 7:30 AM breakfast, pack for the next trek, and break camp by 8:30 AM, to hike for an hour through rainforest glades. During the ascent through heathland, we will have a chance to look for giant lobelias and groundsels. Halfway through the trek, we will stop for lunch and amazing views of Mawenzi
. By 3:00 PM, we will arrive at the Horombo Huts
where we can rest, unpack, and prepare for dinner. Bathrooms with running water are available.
At this point in the excursion guests may start to feel the effects of altitude.To aid your acclimatization, consider spending an extra day resting at Horombo
or climbing to a basecamp below Kibo's sub peak in Mawenzi
Extra day at the Horombo Huts ($210 per person)
We can spend a full day and a second night at Horombo to rest or take a stroll up to the Mawenzi basecamp then return to the Horombo Huts. We can continue up to the Kibo Huts on the fourth day for a midnight start to the summit.
