Overview

Discover your inner explorer by embracing the mountainous challenge trudging via one of the most picturesque trails ‘ Lemosho route’ up to the highest mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro (5,895 m).

Amongst seven official trekking routes to scale the Kilimanjaro including the widely proclaimed as the most scenic Machame, Lemosho route is now considered as the equally beautiful route if not more. As one of the newer paths, Lemosho grants the beautiful scenery, low horde, and mostly high summit success rate.

The route approaches Mt. Kilimanjaro from the west with a long drive from Moshi to Londorossi Gate and begins to climb at Lemosho Glades (2,100 m) through the forest zone. The trek continues steeply sloping into the heather and moorland zone. For the first two days, the trek goes through the rain forest to Shira Ridge. Then the trail passes the entire Shira Plateau from west to east on a pleasant path and connects to the famous Machame route at Lava Tower. Next, the way heads down towards Barranco Valley via the alpine desert zone and traverses the Barranco Wall. The summit attempt is made from Barafu early in the morning all the way up to Uhuru peak (5,895 m) for the mighty sunrise view. After the summit, the trail descent via the Mweka route.

The climb of the Kilimanjaro should not be underestimated. It is essential to be physically as well as mentally prepared to scale the peak successfully without any consequences.
