The Arrow Glacier Camp (Campsite) of Mount Kilimanjaro

The Arrow Glacier Camp is used by the hikers on the western routes for an overnight. The camp is on a vertical all of the Kilimanjaro. The camp is on the route on near the Arrow Glaciers.

The arrow glacier has however melted over time and is longer existent on the Kilimanjaro. The routes that pass the northern route and eventually ends to this camp are Lemosho route and the Shira trail.

Just like all the other camps, this camp lacks infrastructure like toilets and bathrooms. The camp only has pit latrines that are semi permanent and build with wood.

This camp is basically used mostly for descending. It requires a special pass for you to use this camp while ascending.

This camp is located on the eastern side of the Kibo peak which is the highest peak of the Kilimanjaro Mountains.

It’s just a stone throw away from the Western breach vertical wall which was formed as a result of land masses from the Kibo Peak falling and leaving a vertical wall.

The camp is in the Alpine vegetation zone of the Kilimanjaro. This explains why the area is remote. There is almost no vegetation and the temperatures are high with strong dry winds.

This camp however is among the few on the Kilimanjaro ranges that experience snow. You will have nothing to worry about as there is little animal life that can survive here. Therefore, no insects.

The Arrow Glacier of Kilimanjaro Mountain

The Arrow glacier was also known as the Little Barranco. These glaciers have melted over time and no longer exist.

The Drygalski Glacier and the Arrow glaciers have both melted away and ceased to exist on the Kilimanjaro.

This is as a result of global warming. The effects of global warming have had a big effect on the glacier and most of them have lost over 80% of their masses.

If the effects are not controlled, then we may not have any glaciers on the Kilimanjaro by 2030.

These glaciers are in the altitude of about 5,300 meters and 5,470 meters above sea level. They are on the western slopes of the Kibo peak on the Kilimanjaro Mountain.

Glacier is very close to the hazardous Western Breach Route otherwise known as the Arrow Glacier Route and it also sits close to the Lemosho Route.
