    Day 5 Karanga Camp (3959m) – Barafu Hut (4600m)

    Hiking time: 2-3 hours

    Distance: Approximately 4 kilometers

    Habitat: Alpine desert

    Back up to 4600m. The trail intersects with the Mweka Route, which is the trail used to descend on the final two days. The word “barafu” in Swahili means “ice” and this camp is located on a rocky, exposed ridge. Tents will be exposed to wind and rocks.

    The food was always interesting and it's unbelievable what the chef can dish up. This is after 5 days of walking and all has to be carried

    In bed by 1900.
