About
The Umbwe Route is the least used, least crowded route on the mountain. For good reason, it is also the most difficult route on the mountain. Umbwe is a steep, constant, straight climb to the top. The route takes six days minimum to complete, although seven days is recommended. The descent is down Mweka, on the south-east side of the mountain.

My Mount Kilimanjaro with Pinnacle
Aug 2021 • Business
My Kilimanjaro climb was a huge achievement for me. Physically demanding certainly but very much mental with a day to day grind that would bring some people down before they would have wanted. All 10 of our climbers summited which was due to our steady Pinnacle guides and upbeat attitude in camp. Porters were very courteous when passing and created the most memorable moments when they did group singing. It rained, it snowed but through it all the Pinnacle leadership was on top of the whole outstanding experience.

Fabulous trip
Jun 2021 • Friends
What a FABULOUS trip. Well organised. From day 1 till the end. Local Rep in Tanzania was great help to organise a local town tour the day before trek. Trek was high standard ! Good food , experienced guides , friendly & strong SMILING porters. Been looked after very well. Food was great , a lot!!! No question or request was too much.
Tents, matrasses and toilet tent good quality & well looked after. The USA team has been excellent help on the phone from start till finish. The Tanzania Kandoo Team was very reliable. The Guides on the trek were amazing ! Helpful, caring, knowledgeable & HAPPY! Taxi / Transfers well organised and on time. Water plenty on the mountain and well filtered. It was alround 5 star worthy and i would recommend Pinnacle and the Inner route to anyone who wants to have a life changing experience trekking the Kilimsnjaro.

Very Good at Organizing
May 2021 • Couples
Pinnacle Adventures were exceptional with customer service. Everyone was friendly and willing to help in any way they could.
Our guides and porters were exemplary in their care and ensuring we were safe happy and never went hungry. Hassan, Geoffrey and team were amazing, we loved our trek to the top of Kilimanjaro and were confident we chose the best tour operator.
It was a fantastic experience thanks to Pinnacle Adventures and Safaris Ltd

Excellent attantion to details!
Feb 2020 • Solo
I waited a few months before writing this review in case I was going to write with a holiday brain, but my opinion has not changed. This was the best trip I have ever taken. I solo travel a lot but Pinnacle really look after you and made the group a family. Their attention to detail is second to none. I felt so safe and valued every second of every day. I will be booking within Pinnacle Adventures and Safaris again and I will not stop recommending them to everyone I meet. Thank you, and miss you guys
