Here you will rest a little bit and then continue to hike towards the gorgeous Barranco Camp. It will take about six to seven hours to reach the camp and on your way, you will get a view of the alpine desert. Along with that, the beauty of Barranco Valley will also keep your mind occupied.

In case of difficulty, one of our guides will be available to offer a helping hand. This route towards the mountain ridge ensures further acclimatization thanks to its multiple descents and ascents. Walking along the ridge you can take in the beautiful landscape with its stunning contrasts of desert and vegetation, before finally reaching the cloudy Karanga Camp. You trek will take between 3 – 4 hours, leaving more than enough time to rest and play a game of rummy. Evening meal and overnight at Karanga Camp.

Another 1 – 2 hours will take you to Uhuru Peak (5,895m), where you can enjoy the sun rising over the African landscape, casting a pink hue over the snowy peak and making the glaciers sparkle like diamonds around you.
