About this trip

 The Lemosho route is considered the most scenic trail on Kilimanjaro,  granting panoramic visitors on various sides of the mountain. As one of  the newer routes, Lemosho is a superb choice for your climb. It is our  preferred route due to its ideal balance of low crowds, beautiful  scenery and a high summit success rate. Most of our clients climb  Kilimanjaro using this route and they consistently report that they  loved it. Thus, Lemosho is highly recommended.

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  acclimatise, thus increasing your chances of reaching the top. Overnights on the 8-day Lemosho Route will be in tents.

Then the route traverses underneath Kilimanjaro's Southern  Ice Field on a path known as the Southern Circuit before summiting from  Barafu. Descent is made via the Mweka route.
