Lemosho route is a very pleasant one where wildlife is often spotted in the forest. This is one of the quietest uphill trails to Kilimanjaro.
It is not recommended to attempt this route during the rainy season as its starting point is hard to access at this time. This route is not as popular as the Machame or the Marangu routes, but it is a good alternative to consider for those more leisurely climbers who enjoy reaching the summit as much as every step on the way. The different landscapes are another benefit of this route. Along the way one can enjoy the attractive forests on the western side of the massif, the Shira Plateau and the scenic journey along the south side of the mountain from the Lava Tower and Barranco Camp.
Accommodation will be provided in tents. Like the Machame Route, this one also descends using the Mweka Route. From Shira 1, the itinerary is the same as Machame except for an extra day at Karanga Camp, which makes acclimatization much easier and shortens distances to Barafu Camp. This allows us to face the summit day more refreshed and with a greater prospect of success.
