About Kilimanjaro Lemosho route

Unlike other trails, Lemosho Route starts at a very low altitude. It is a long and difficult route with very few people, until it converges with the Machame Route. Despite its remoteness and difficulty, it is favoured by many trek operators because it is an extremely beautiful route with low traffic.

Approaching the mountain from the west, the route begins with a long drive from Moshi. The minimum duration for this route is six days, but 8 days is ideal, so climbers get time to get acclimatized and enjoy the panoramic views from multiple sides of the mountain. During the first two days of the trip, trekkers traverse through beautiful rainforests, where small animals such as the Colobus and blue monkeys are visible. In comparison to the Machame route, which simply intersects the Shira Plateau, Lemosho crosses the Plateau from east to west, providing marvelous views of Kibo Peak.

Other attractions include the Lava Tower, where climbers get to enjoy panoramic vistas and the Great Barranco Wall, which presents a difficult and thrilling challenge. Climbers will rest overnight in tents and after reaching the summit, the descent is made on the Mweka Route (designated descent trail for the other routes). The Lemosho is a highly recommended route because of its stunning scenic views, relatively low traffic and high summit success rate. Moreover, after a few days of climbing, the Lemosho route merges with the Machame route all the way up to the summit and the descent down Mwaka. Due to the extra days on the lower altitudes, this is the best trek in terms of acclimatization.

“The whole trip has been incredible, very well organised and everything has been thought off. The climb was amazing, beautiful scenery and wonderful people. Easily the hardest physical challenge of our lives to date but also the most enjoyable and rewarding. The crew were first class and we will never forget this wonderful experience for the rest of our lives. A real privilege and a life changer.”

“Excellent. If you want to get to the top of Kilimanjaro and stand in awe on 'The Roof of Africa' which is surely why you are considering this trip, the eight day Lemosho Route is the trek for you. It's the right length, with three days or more of going higher but sleeping lower and it will give you the best chance of making a successful summit bid.”

“If you have been thinking about climbing Kilimanjaro for a while but have hesitated go ahead and do it. The Lemosho route gives you plenty of time to acclimatise and why go all the way to Tanzania and rush it? The guides make sure no one goes too fast and it was only on the summit climb that we gradually split into small groups according to ability. So don't worry you will not get left behind and you wont get made to feel you are slowing the group down. EVERYONE goes slowly. It's compulsory. And don't worry if you want to go solo. I think most people climbing Kilimanjaro are solo travellers anyway.”

“12 out of 12 made it - in various states of disrepair - to the roof of Africa and down again. A fine effort, aided and abetted by excellent guides and following the often quoted 5 golden rules for Kilimanjaro. It's a shame i can only recall 4 of them but something like eat well, drink lots of fluid, go slowly, and have a positive mental attitude. I'd emphasise the latter which requires a lot of staying calm when you feel sick, trusting yourself, and finding the wherewithal to plod slowly all night up a freezing mountain when your subconscious self is telling you to pack it in and do something more sensible but less inspirational”

The Best Kili Experience Reviewed Tour: Kilimanjaro Climb - Lemosho Route
5 - Excellent
“I couldn't have asked for a better Kilimanjaro experience than what I had with Exodus. The guides and rest of staff were incredibly knowledgable and attentive, the Lemosho route was beautiful and varied in its scenery and summit night - though mentally and physically taxing - was an incredibly fulfilling experience.”

“Very challenging but ultimately rewarding trip. Camping is a pain in the neck after a while. Prepare to be dirty, cold and generally uncomfortable for the whole trip, I think this got to me more than the walking. I believe Kili is quite scenic but it was misty for us most of the time and I could have been at home in Scotland out a damp hillwalk.”

“This was my second and successful attempt on summiting Kilimanjaro in nine weeks. On the first attempt I was recommended to abandon the trek at 5,000m because breathing had become difficult and I was suffering the first signs of "freeze-up". I shook hands with my guide, Naiman, and did as he asked and returned to camp. These guides watch you like hawks and will know the state of your health better than yourself. Respect them. When I returning in October (I'm not a quitter!) I was better equipped and the Kili Weather Gods were kind to us: summit night, this time, was relatively mild (-2 degrees - instead of -14 degrees without the terrific winds we had in August) and reaching Stellar Point and ultimately Uhuru peak just after sunrise was magical as was the icecapes and amazing vistas.”
