ABOUT

MOUNT KILIMANJARO LEMOSHO ROUTE

Lemosho Route is the longest of the standard routes and is without doubt the most beautiful. The Lemosho route is one of the newer routes on the mountain, and a superb choice for your climb. It is our preferred route due to its ideal balance of low traffic, beautiful scenery and a high summit success rate. The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the west, beginning with a long drive from Moshi to Londorossi Gate. From there, the first two days are spent trekking through the rainforest to Shira Ridge. Read More
