Western Breach Route

Climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania

The Western Breach is considered to be the toughest and most challenging route to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. But for the very few climbers that are willing to take this challenge, it beholds its very unique beauty and offers aspects of the mountain that no other route has to offer. It is the only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the west and leads you to the crater of the volcano and to the Furtwangler Glacier with an overnight at Crater Camp.
Starting from Moshi to Londorossi Gate, the route traverses the Shira Plateau and then follows other routes up to Lava Tower. After an overnight at Lava Tower the route is heading towards Arrow Glacier Camp through a danger zone that is only passable at night when temperatures are low enough. It’s the only route which requires helmets for safety. The breach itself is a rock slide that is constantly moving. After leaving the danger zone, climbers are rewarded with a spectacular view of Mount Meru and walking by the massive glacier on Kilimanjaro.
Another unique highlight of this route is that it is the only route that allows an overnight at Crater Camp and to actually stand at the edge of the heart of the mountain, the Kilimanjaro crater, before summiting Uhuru Peak at 5.895 m. Climbers that have chosen Western Breach have really seen all the miracles that Mount Kilimanjaro has to offer.
The Western Breach is a route that not many companies offer due to special safety restrictions and required expertise and requirements to the mountain guides. Tanzania Horizon Safaris is proud to offer this challenging route to ambitious and adventurous climbers. Please contact us for further information.
