Lemosho route is the most dramatic and beautiful route up to Kilimanjaro. It is the most remote and getting popularity now days which traverse some of Kilimanjaro most striking and least traveled landscapes, including the base of Kibo Peak’s and dramatic south-facing glaciers. This route has added benefits of trekking across the Shira Plateau a World Heritage Site trekking 180 degrees around Kilimanjaro and also this route allowed plenty of time to acclimatize to the high altitude and this is the key to your safety, comfort, enjoyment and success while trekking mountain Kilimanjaro.Lemosho route can be climb for 6 days, 7 days and 8 days, we strongly recommend 8 days for more time of acclimatization and get use to the altitude before summit.

Lemosho climbing for 7 days provide two options for the client whether to skip Shira 1 to Shira 2 on day three or skip Karanga camp from Baranco to Barafu on day 5, but we strongly recommend to skip Shira 1to Shira 2 in order to get more time for acclimatization while your still at low elevations.
