Start and end in Arusha, the "Kilimanjaro - Lemosho Route" tour is a guided trekking tour that takes 10 days. You will travel through Millenium Camp, Lava Tower, Shira and 6 other destinations in Tanzania. "Kilimanjaro - Lemosho Route" is a small group tour which includes accommodation, meals and others.

Climb the highest mountain in Africa on the beautiful and challenging Lemosho route. Stand on the highest peak of Africa - approach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, fondly known as Kili, via the challenging and beautiful Lemosho Route. Our trip starts and ends in Arusha, and this itinerary gives maximum possible acclimatisation to enjoy the incredible scenery. We climb the rim of the Shira Plateau with a gentle ascent and panoramic views. We walk on the lava ridges and enjoy extensive views of the plains below. From here, there is some steep climbing but also a chance for a restful afternoon before the final summit day. We aim to be on the top of Africa by sunrise with our reward being the panorama of mountain-top and savannah, perhaps mythically swathed in mist, below us.

“The Lemosho trek I did with WE was so well organised. Our guide and his co-leaders were all excellent. The food was plentiful and tasty. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend doing a trek with WE.”

“Once again World Expeditions have done an awesome job in preparing me for an adventure and then ensuring that I have the best opportunity to successfully achieve my goal. World Expeditions attempt to focus on the client experience and if things do go wrong, then they are quickly there to assist. My trip to Mount Kilimanjaro resulted in a successful and safe climb to the summit. This was only achieved through the diligent support of the office staff and the on ground support of the local Tanzanian team. Well done everyone and I truly loved the experience. I will definitely book via World Expeditions for my next adventure.”
