7-DAYS | 6 NIGHTS KILIMANJARO TREKKING VIA LEMOSHO ROUTE

Lemosho route is considered the most beautiful trail to the roof of Africa, we highly recommend it too because of its dazzling landscape and the high success rate, and most of our clients prefer this route also, hence making it one of our top choices when it comes to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. The hike commences in the londorosi gate just 3 hours away from moshi town, the trek will take you through five different climates from cultivation zone, to arctic zone at the peak.

The route is thoughtfully designed in a way to improve acclimatization for climbers. lemosho route can be tackled in six days, however it is advised to be done in at least 7 – 9 days for a better altitude acclimatization schedule.

Then the route proceed to moir hut which is a best place for acclimatization due to short hike that can be done in the nearby lent hills, there after we will hike over lava tower before dropping into barranco valley.
