A lesser-travelled route with breathtaking views. Particularly enjoyed by nature lovers
Do you want to go on a route to the summit of Kilimanjaro, which is only used by a few mountain hikers
and still has a very original charm? Then the Lemosho route is probably the right choice for you. The first
few days travel on secluded paths through lush rainforest, heath and moorland. From the Barranco Camp
the tour is then identical to the Machame route. The tour is roughly level of challenge as the Machame
route and requires a good physical condition and surefootedness. Due to its height profile, it also offers
good conditions for acclimatization. The percentage of summit successes is the same as on the Machame
route and higher than on the Marangu route.
We recommend the Lemosho route as an 8 day tour. This tour fully applies the rule “Pole Pole” (slowly, slowly) and an additional acclimatization day is an advantage for the successful ascent. We organize the tour also as a 7 day tour, the way leads you then to Shira Camp 2 on the second day.
- A very scenic and natural route
- Ascent via the Lemosho route and descent via the Mweka route
- Climbing passage in the Barranco Wall
- Route profile offers very good conditions for acclimatization
- Total distance about 74 km
Single accommodation is not possible on this tour, as the overnight stays take place in mountain huts with multiple occupancy.
