Summit of Kilimanjaro 9 days Lemosho route is taken into account of the foremost scenic trail on Summit of Kilimanjaro granting panoramic vistas on various sides of the mountain together of the newer routes.

Summit of Kilimanjaro on Lemosho could even be an impressive choice for your climb. it’s our preferred route due to its ideal balance of low crowds, beautiful scenery, and a high summit success rate.

East Africa Travel Company® focuses on guiding the Lemosho route. Most of our clients climb Kilimanjaro using this route which they consistently report that they loved it. Thus, Lemosho is extremely recommended.

The Lemosho route is approximately 70 km/ 42 miles from the gate to the gate. it’s designed for physically fit people with some hiking experience.

The Lemosho route crosses the entire Shira Plateau from west to east during a pleasing, relatively flat hike. Crowds are low until the route joins the Machame route near Lava Tower.

Then the route traverses underneath Kilimanjaro’s Southern geological formation on a path mentioned because of the Southern Circuit before summiting from Barafu.

Summit of Kilimanjaro

Summit of Kilimanjaro 9 Days Lemosho Route is an unspoiled, remote, little-used, and pleasant way the utmost amount due to the Shira plateau.

The direction is one of the few where companies could even be accompanied on a primary day through an armed ranger because the forests across the Lemosho Glades are inhabited by means of buffalo, elephants, and different wildlife.

Converges with Machame on day 4 at Barranco.

But as Tanzania’s tourism industry flourished, the Kilimanjaro park authority created more trails to African’s highest peak to distribute climbers to more areas of the park.

This reduced bottlenecks at certain points and also made for a more pleasant experience by limiting crowds. Additionally, these latter trails were more thoughtfully designed to reinforce acclimatization for the climber by incorporating longer distances, longer times on the mountain, and shorter elevation gains. Lemosho, a relatively new route, falls into this category.

What to Expect

Summit of Kilimanjaro 9 days Lemosho route is taken into account of the foremost scenic trail on Summit of Kilimanjaro granting panoramic vistas on various sides of the mountain together of the newer routes.

Summit of Kilimanjaro on Lemosho could even be an impressive choice for your climb. it’s our preferred route due to its ideal balance of low crowds, beautiful scenery, and a high summit success rate.

  • You Will Hike Very, Very Slow
  • “Pole, pole,” they will say. That means, “slow, slow,” in Swahili. For speed-freak hikers like me, it can be torturous to trek like a tortoise. But honestly, it is for the best.
  • You Will be Pampered
  • Every climb I’ve ever done prior had been self-supported. Just some friends and I with crazy plans, unwavering optimism, and pure determination. No guides and no porters. This time was different. Way different!
  • You can’t climb Kilimanjaro without going with a guided expedition company. That is unless you’ve got Red Bull or the like cutting through the red tape to give you special permission to speed-climb to the top and roll down it in a Zorb ball or something. Generally, you will go with a guide company. It’s a good thing really. The mountain is better controlled and stays much cleaner that way. And these guys have it dialed in!
  • Take The Time To Learn
  • You’ll have a lot of time hiking. Use it to learn about everything! There’s no better way to pass time on the trail than asking questions, trading stories, and getting to know the people and place better. Learn about your expedition mates if you didn’t know them before the trek. Ask questions and get to know your guides. How long has he been guiding for? Was he a porter prior? How many times has he been to the top? What is his family like? What motivates him and what are his future aspirations?
  • Don’t Forget…
  • I won’t go too deep into what to bring or not to bring because I posted the entire packing list before leaving for climbing Kilimanjaro…
