7 Day Kilimanjaro Trekking Tour + 2 nights hotel stay

    Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route

Home » Tanzania Trekking » Kilimanjaro Climb »  Lemosho Route Experience

The Lemosho route is one of the newer routes on climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. The route begins in the west (windward side of the mountain) and rather than simply intersecting Shira Plateau (like Machame), the lesser-known Lemosho crosses it from Shira Ridge to Shira Camp. Climbers encounter low traffic until the route joins the Machame route. Afterwards, Lemosho follows the same route through Lava Tower, Barranco and Barafu, known as the southern circuit.

The minimum number of days required for this route is six days, although eight days is ideal.

Lemosho is considered the most beautiful route on Kilimanjaro and grants panoramic vistas on various sides of the mountain. It is our favorite route because it offers a great balance of low traffic, scenic views and a high summit success rate. Compared to the Marangu and the Rongai route, the Lemosho route is more challenging.
