Saddle Hut (3560m) – Socialist Peak (4566m) – Miriakamba Hut (2514m)

After a small snack and a hot drink, your way to the summit starts at around 2 o’clock in the morning. In the glow of your headlight, you will head up through the bushland to Rhino Point. The path becomes more and more challenging, and some passages with easy climbing will be encountered. Along the long north ridge the route continues to the summit, which you will reach around sunrise. The moment when the sun rises behind the Kilimanjaro and the plain to the Meru starts to shine in a orange-red light, will let you quickly forget the strenuous ascent. On the descent, you return to the Saddle Hut where lunch and a hot drink will await you. Afterwards you will continue to Mirikamba Hut, reaching it in the early afternoon. Here you can rest and enjoy your summit success. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner
