TREKKERS FOR MOUNT KILIMANJARO LEMOSHO ROUTE

For all trekkers on Mount Kilimanjaro, there are six established routes to climb Mount Kilimanjaro – Marangu, Machame, Lemosho, Shira, Rongai, and Umbwe.

The Marangu, Machame, and Umbwe route all approach from the south of the mountain. The Lemosho and Shira routes approach from the west. The Rongai route approaches from the north near Kenya. All routes except Marangu descend via Mweka.

Lemosho Route on Mount Kilimanjaro

Trekkes on Mount Kilimanjaro via The Lemosho Route

As a newer route, it is more remote and arguably more beautiful, but a bit longer and slightly more expensive. It starts on the Western side of the mountain at the Londorossi Gate which is a further drive from town and was introduced as an alternative to the Shira route.

After beautiful forests and moorlands, it crosses the Shira Plateau on day 3 to connect with the Machame Route at Lava Tower and down towards Barranco Valley via the Southern Circuit.

You may be lucky enough to see buffalo, elephants,s and other games. Because this route can be done over a longer period of time for acclimatization, it has a higher success rate than the summit.

Duration:
 7 – 8 days
Difficulty: Medium
Scenery: Excellent
Traffic: Medium

Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, Trekkers will be met and transferred for overnight accommodation at Kilimanjaro Crane Hotel 4 stars B&B. Your head guide will meet you for your briefing, gear check, and arrange for you to hire any equipment you may need.

Elevation: 2389m/7838ft to 2785m/9137ft
Altitude gained: 396m

Departing from Moshi a 45-minute drive will take you through welcoming mountainside villages to the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate. We will patiently wait for our permits to be issued while watching the hustle and bustle of operations as many crews prepare for the journey ahead Enjoy the beautiful rainforest scenery and windy trails while your guide tells you about the local flora and fauna and natural wildlife. At these lower elevations, the trail can be muddy and quite slippery. We highly recommend gaiters and trekking poles here.

 

DAY 2: MTI MKUBWA CAMP – SHIRA I CAMP: 17KM/5MI | 6-8HRS | MOORLAND

Elevation: 2785m/9137ft to 3895m/12,779ft

After a good night’s sleep and a hearty breakfast, we emerge from the rain forest and continue on an ascending path, we leave the forest behind now, the trail climbs steadily with wide views to reach the rim of the Shira Plateau. Temperatures begin to drop.

 

DAY 3: SHIRA 2 CAMP – LAVA TOWER – BARRANCO CAMP: 10.1KM/6MI | 5-7HRS | SEMI-DESERT

Elevation: 3895m/12,779ft to 3986m/13,077ft
Altitude gained: 91m

Although you end the day around the same elevation as when you began, this day is very important for acclimatization. From Shira Plateau we continue east up a ridge, passing the junction towards the Kibo peak before we then continue, South East towards the Lava Tower, called the “Shark’s Tooth” (elevation. 4650m/15,250ft). Shortly after the tower, we come to a second junction, which leads to the Arrow Glacier. We then continue to descend overnight at Barranco Camp.

 

DAY 4: BARRANCO CAMP – KARANGA CAMP: 5.2KM/3MI | 4-5HRS | ALPINE DESERT

Elevation: 3986m/13,077ft to 4034m/13,253ft
Altitude gained: 48m

After breakfast, we continue on a steep ridge up to the adventurous Barranco Wall to the Karanga Valley and the junction, which connects, with the Mweka Trail. This is one of the most impressive days to see the power, agility, and strength of your crew zip over this wall with what appears such ease. Overnight at Karanga Camp.

 

DAY 5: HIKE KARANGA CAMP – BARAFU CAMP: 3.3KM /2 MI | 4-5HRS | ALPINE DESERT

Altitude gained: 1233m
Descent to 3090m/10,150ft
Altitude lost: 2789m

Excitement is building as morning comes with an early start between midnight and 2 a.m. This is the most mentally and physically challenging portion of the trek.

We continue our way to the summit between the Rebmann and Ratzel glaciers trying to stay warm and focused on the amazing sense of accomplishment that lies ahead. With a switchback motion in a northwesterly direction and ascend through heavy scree towards Stella Point on the crater rim. You will be rewarded with the most magnificent sunrise during your short rest here. Faster hikers may view the sunrise from the summit. From here on your remaining 1 hour ascent to Uhuru Peak, you are likely to encounter snow all the way.

Congratulations, one step at a time you have now reached Uhuru Peak the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the entire continent of Africa!

After photos, celebrations, and maybe a few tears of joy we take a few moments to enjoy this incredible accomplishment. We begin our steep descent down to Mweka Camp, stopping at Barafu for lunch and a very brief rest. We strongly recommend gaiters and trekking poles for uncooperative loose gravel and volcano ash terrain. Well-deserved rest awaits you to enjoy your last evening on the mountain. Overnight Mweka Camp.

 

DAY 7: MWEKA CAMP – MWEKA GATE – MOSHI: 9.1KM/5.7MI |3-4HRS | RAINFOREST

After breakfast and a heartfelt ceremony of appreciation and team bonding with your crew, it’s time to say goodbye. We continue the descent down to the Mweka Park Gate to receive your summit certificates. As the weather is drastically warmer, the terrain is wet, muddy, and steep and we highly recommend Gaiters and trekking poles.

From the gate, a vehicle will meet you at Mweka village to drive you back to your hotel in Moshi (about 30 minutes). Enjoy a long overdue hot shower, dinner, and celebrations!!

Overnight Kilimanjaro Crane hotel 4 stars B&B. before being transferred to your journey home, safari or a relaxing trip to Zanzibar.

Mt. Kili and Safari "I climbed the Machame Route with two other friends. It was the greatest experience!! East Africa Travel is the way to go. We had two guides, a cook and 12-13 porters for the three of us. John and Issac; the guides, were great. Very friendly, very knowledgeable. The food was amazing, much more than we expected. Breakfast ranged from eggs and toast to porridge/oatmeal. Some of the lunches were hot, other days we had lunch boxes. Every dinner included a soup, main course (meat, starch, veggies), and fresh fruit for desert. The camp was always set up for us each day when we arrived. Everyone was very polite and made the difficult climb much more bearable. After summiting Mt. kili, my friends and I went on a two-day safari. Tarangire national park and Ngorogoro crater. Both days were amazing, our guide was knowledgeable and we saw most of the animals we wanted to see. The overnight stay in between the two parks was awesome. slept in tents that had bunks inside. the meal there was very good too. My friends and I had done a lot of research before we booked our trips and East Africa is a choice we are very pleased with. HIGHLY recommended."
