Umbwe is the most scenic and direct way to Uhuru Peak. This route became well-known after it was featured in the suspenseful IMAX film Kilimanjaro - To the Roof of Africa. You pass through five different climate zones while climbing the Umbwe, from the jungle to the glaciers at the top. After following a forested ridge that falls to the moorlands, the path crosses the southern icefields and joins the Machame path, which continues all the way to the summit.
