7 Days Kilimanjaro - Lemosho Route.
Highlight About Lemosho Route
The Lemosho route is one of our preferred routes due to its low traffic, beautiful scenery and a high summit success rate.
The Lemosho route starts off from the west, beginning with a long drive from Moshi to Londorossi Gate. From there, the first two days are spent trekking through the lush rainforest to Shira Plateau.
We recommend a minimum of 7 days to attempt this route but 8 days is preferable for better acclimatization and summit success.
The Lemosho route joins the Machame route at Shira 2 Camp and then follows the same route through the southern circuit and descending at Mweka Gate.
