As a newer route, it's farther and arguably nicer, but a bit longer and a bit more expensive. It begins on the western slopes of the mountain at the gate of Londorossi, a further drive from town, and has been touted as an alternative to the Shira route. After beautiful forests and moors, it crosses the Shira Plateau on day 3 to join the Machame route at the Lava Tower and descends into the Barranco valley via the southern detour. You may be lucky enough to see buffalo, elephant and other games. Because this route can be taken over a longer period of time to adapt, it has a higher success rate when it comes to climax.

Departing from Moshi, a 45-minute journey takes you through welcoming mountain villages to the gateway to Kilimanjaro National Park. We will patiently wait for permits to be issued while monitoring the bustle of operations as more crews prepare for the journey ahead. Enjoy beautiful rainforest vistas and windswept trails as your guide tells you about the local flora and fauna and natural wildlife. At these lower elevations, the trail can be muddy and quite slippery. We highly recommend walking and hiking poles here.
