About this trip

 

         8 days Kilimanjaro hiking up via Lemosho route Ride down  via Marangu route probably has a slight edge on the scenery in large  part because the route up and down is different, The Bike trek is one of  our product of trekking the Kilimanjaro Mountain, with climb up – ride  down option you will hike via Lemosho up to the peak, then ride down  from the peak to Horombo then ride down via Kilema route. Summit bound  visitors will hike with the team up to the summit, on the last day  visitors will ride down from Horombo via Kilema route (19km) and  cyclists then meet their Hiking team at Marangu gate. But the challenge  comes when client select this option will be required to pay the double  fees which might be expensive compared to the normal bike trek tour days  where you Hike/Ride up and ride down via Marangu Route
         The lesser-known Lemosho route begins on the western side of Mt  Kilimanjaro. The first 2 days of the tour cross the thick rainforest  belt which then changes into heath and moorland with many ferns and  ericas along the way. The small trail sometimes has very steep passages  and goes through diverse landscapes.
           On the third day, the route joins the Machame Route and a  long, but rewarding, road lies ahead until you reach the summit. The  extra day on this 8-day trek gives you the opportunity to better  acclimatize, thus increasing your chances of reaching the top.
Overnights on the 8-day Lemosho Route will be in tents.
