Booking Now

Description:

The Lemosho Route is a popular and scenic route for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. It is a longer route, taking 8 days to complete, which allows for better acclimatization and a higher chance of reaching the summit. The Lemosho Route offers a bit of everything. Enjoy the first couple of days in the forest with amazing views and scenery along the way. That’s not all, the Lemosho route allows camps over at locations with some of the best sunrises and sunsets on Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Arrive in Tanzania: Arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport and transfer to your hotel in Moshi or Arusha for an overnight stay.

Tour Itinerary:

After breakfast, you'll drive to the Lemosho Gate (2,100 meters) where you'll complete park formalities before beginning your trek. Today's trek takes you through lush rainforest to Big Tree Camp (2,780 meters) where you'll set up camp for the night.

Today's trek takes you through a moorland and heath ecosystem to Shira 1 Camp (3,505 meters). Along the way, you'll have great views of the Shira Plateau and Mt. Meru. You'll spend the night at the campsite.

Today's trek takes you eastward to Moir Hut (4,200 meters) at the base of Lent Hills. This trek provides great views of the plains of Kenya to the north and Mt. Kilimanjaro's summit to the east. You'll spend the night at Moir Hut.

Today's trek takes you up to Lava Tower (4,640 meters), a famous landmark on the mountain. After lunch, you'll descend to Barranco Camp (3,900 meters) for the night. This descent helps with acclimatization.

Today's trek takes you up the Barranco Wall, which requires some scrambling but is not technically difficult. You'll then continue on to Karanga Camp (3,995 meters), where you'll spend the night.

Today's trek takes you up to Barafu Camp (4,673 meters), the last camp before the summit. You'll rest here for the night before beginning your summit push.

You'll wake up around midnight and begin your ascent to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro (5,895 meters). This is a challenging, but rewarding trek that takes several hours. You'll reach the summit around sunrise and then begin your descent down to Mweka Camp (3,080 meters). This is a long and tiring day, but the sense of accomplishment is worth it. You'll spend the night at Mweka Camp.

Today's trek takes you down through the rainforest to the Mweka Gate (1,650 meters), where you'll sign out and receive your summit certificates. You'll then be transferred back to your hotel in Moshi or Arusha for a well-deserved shower and rest.
