A hard day climb to Kibo Hut (4703 m), 5-6  hours crossing the barren sub – Alpine terrain of the saddle between Mawenzi and Kibo peaks with picnic lunch box along the way.  We relax on arrival to prepare for the next stage which begins shortly after, Mid night a very early start at around 12:00, follow the zigzag path up the scree slope, stopping frequently to catch breath in the starlit air. This is the steepest and most demanding section for the climb, taking five hours to Gilliman's Point (5685m). Gillman’s Point offers great views of the Eastern Ice fields.  See sunrise behind Mawenzi Peak illuminating the plain. Then walk a further 45 minutes around the crater and up to the highest point Uhuru Peak (5,895m), the roof of Africa where you will be rewarded with stunning views of the spectacular glaciers illuminated by the sunrise.  Thereafter it is a 3-4 hour descent to Kibo Hut (3720m) with a rest at Kibo Hut on route.
