About this trip


The Lemosho Route is one of the seven primary routes used for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. It is a longer and more scenic route that approaches the mountain from the west, and it offers excellent opportunities for acclimatization due to its longer duration. The route is considered to be one of the less-traveled routes, making it ideal for climbers seeking a more remote and quiet experience.

The Lemosho Route typically takes 7-8 days to complete, with an optional additional day for acclimatization at the Shira Plateau. The trek starts at the Lemosho Gate, located on the western side of Kilimanjaro, and it crosses through various ecological zones, including rainforest, heath, moorland, and alpine desert.

Success Rate for 7 Days Lemosho Route

The success rate for the 7-day Lemosho Route varies depending on several factors such as the climber's fitness level, altitude sickness, weather conditions, and the quality of the guides and equipment. Generally, the success rate for the Lemosho Route is around 90%, which is higher than some of the other routes on Mount Kilimanjaro.

The longer duration of the Lemosho Route and the Northern Circuit's inclusion provide more time for acclimatization, making it easier for climbers to adjust to the high altitude and increase their chances of reaching the summit. Additionally, the Lemosho Route is less crowded than some of the other routes, making it easier to maintain a steady pace and avoid traffic jams.

It's worth noting that even with the high success rate, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is still a challenging and demanding endeavor that requires proper preparation, training, and equipment. Climbers should be physically fit and mentally prepared for the physical and mental challenges of the climb, and they should always follow the guidance of experienced guides and take all necessary safety precautions.

The Lemosho Route also includes a unique feature called the "Northern Circuit," which is a longer and more gradual ascent that circles around the northern slopes of the mountain before joining the final approach to the summit via the Barafu Route. This circuit offers even more time for acclimatization and stunning views of the mountain and its surroundings.

Overall, the Lemosho Route is an excellent option for climbers seeking a longer and more scenic route that allows for proper acclimatization and a higher chance of reaching the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. However, as with any climb, it is essential to prepare and train properly, follow the guidance of experienced guides, and take all necessary precautions to ensure a safe and enjoyable climb.
