Lemosho route is considered the most beautiful trail to the roof of Africa, we highly recommend it too because of its dazzling landscape and the high success rate, and most of our clients prefer this route also, hence making it one of our top choices when it comes to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. The hike commences in the londorosi gate just 3 hours away from moshi town, the trek will take you through five different climates from cultivation zone, to arctic zone at the peak.
The route is thoughtfully designed in a way to improve acclimatization for climbers. lemosho route can be tackled in six days, however it is advised to be done in at least 7 – 9 days for a better altitude acclimatization schedule. Opting to climb the mountain in more than eight days increases your chance of reaching the top up to 90%.
