This is one of the least well known yet beautiful routes up Kilimanjaro; your efforts will be rewarded with a unique scenic splendor that is not seen on the other commonly traversed routes.
The seven-day Lemosho route variation is preferred over the six-day option because it breaks up day two into two days, providing better acclimatization and a more gradual ascent.
We recommend a minimum of 7 days to attempt this route but 8 days is preferable for better acclimatization and summit success.
The start is west of the other gates, and you pass through the Lemosho Glades where you may view some of the game in this side of the park (Buffalo, elephants and some other big game animals.) It is not unusual for climbers to be accompanied by an armed ranger on the first day.
Below is an example itinerary, all our programs are flexible and tailored to the individual groups so please let us know if you would like to make any changes. The day before your climb you will receive a full briefing from our climbing team, all your equipment will receive a final check and we will be able to answer any of your questions.
Welcome to Tanzania! Upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA), our friendly driver will be waiting outside the arrival lounge with a personalized sign to greet you. Sit back and relax during the 40-50 minute drive to your accommodation in Moshi. Enjoy a delicious meal and unwind before embarking on your exciting adventure the following day.
