The Path Less Traveled
The Lemosho Route is renowned for being less crowded than other routes, making it an ideal choice for those who want to savor the unspoiled wilderness of Mount Kilimanjaro. You won’t have to jostle for space as you take in the awe-inspiring views of the Shira Plateau and the Western Breach. This is your opportunity to experience nature at its purest.
The 9-day trek through the Lemosho Route exposes you to a variety of ecosystems. You’ll start your journey in the lush rainforests, where the air is thick with moisture and the foliage is alive with wildlife. As you ascend, you’ll transition to heath and alpine desert zones, each with its own unique charm and challenges.
Better Acclimatization, Higher Success
One of the secrets behind the Lemosho Route’s popularity is its high success rate. With an average success rate of 90% for the 8-day trek and 85% for the 7-day trek, climbers have a better chance of reaching the summit. This is partly due to the longer length profile of the route, allowing for improved acclimatization and more rest days. Your safety and well-being are paramount on this journey.
Camping at Crater Camp
A highlight of the Lemosho Route is the opportunity to camp at Crater Camp, situated near the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Imagine waking up to the sight of the sun rising over the African plains, painting the landscape with breathtaking hues. It’s an experience like no other and a memory you’ll treasure forever.
