Day 03: Horombo Huts- Horombo Huts (15,463 ft)
You will have a full day to acclimatize at the Horombo huts, with hiking up to the Zebra Rocks on the bottom of Mawenzi peaks, returning to the Huts for dinner and oVernight
Day 04: Horombo Hut â.€.“. Kibo Hut (15,463 ft)

After roughly two hours you should reach Hans Meyerâ.€.™.s Cave and from here the gradient gets steeper. Continue your climb for approximately another 3 hours to Gilmanâ.€.™.s Point and you will be rewarded by the dramatic sight of the rising sun reflecting off the ice fields and craggy peaks of Mawenzi.
Walk along the crater rim for another couple of hours to reach your goal â.€.“. Uhuru Peak, towering at 19,340 ft. After congratulating yourself and your companions on this great achievement, descend to Kibo Hut for rest and refreshment before continuing to Horombo Hut for your last night on the mountain..
