Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route

About the 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.

Lemosho route - Quick Facts

  • Trek Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult
  • Trek Duration: 8 Days
  • Max Altitude: 5895 Meters
  • Accommodation: Camping
  • Best Season: All Year
  • Transport To/From Trek: Flight

“I went on a Kilimanjaro hike (7 day Lemosho) with my sister. The nature is amazing - especially the first two days. The route was also very good for aclimization - we didn't encounter any serious altitude sickness symptoms before summit-night. The trail is in great condition and is maintained very well. The mountain itself is majestic and abolutely huge! The campsites were clean and well organized. If you enjoy the green rainforrest and aren't in a hurry to reach the summit, the Lemosho route is definately reccomendable.”

“We Planned for many years to come to Africa and Climb Kilimanjaro, It was a good choice to go with Bless Africa Tours and Safaris, we had best time climbing kili with Danny and Lodrick and all the team of Bless Africa tours. Before our climb Godbless was very professional,he answers all of our questions in time ad explain everything about our climb,and makes us feel comfortable about the climb,he provided a great customer support it was beyond our expectation. Lodrick and Danny takes a very good care of us on the mountain, they were very knowledgeable and very professional,we were checked every morning and evening to make sure our heartbeat and oxygen in the blood was normal, they had their own first aid and oximeter. The porters were friendly and carry all of our items, John the chef prepares excellent food and he was very talented. I have come home with many memories thanks to this company. I highly recommend Lemosho route and Bless Africa tours if your looking for the best company to climb Kilimanjaro and and explore Tanzania.”

“Enosa Expeditions provided everything for me, including airport transfers, accommodation (a very nice hotel called Park View Hotel, located in Moshi town), camping facilities and all staff in mountain. I climb Mount Kilimanjaro through Lemosho route for 7 days and my guide "Benson" made everything to reach the Summit of Mount Kilimanjaro! I've travelled alone, but Enosa includes me in a very friendly group. Enosa Expeditions fulfilled all deal details and at the end offered me two T-shirts and some fridge magnets. Last meal at hotel was offered by Mr. Noel. Comparing with others companies, the price was very reasonable. I want to thank Mr. Noel by serious and professional way they deal with your customers.”

“Five months ago I was in Tanzania and I did Mount Kilimanjaro trekking as well as I did two days safari trip in Manyara National park and Serengeti National Park. For Mount Kilimanjaro I used Lemosho route, am not aware about other route but the tour company which organised our tour suggested this route because they had a group which was going by that day. After Mount Kilimanjaro I did two days safari in Manyara and Serengeti. Enosa Expeditions is a company which organised my tour and they did everything for me including booking for hotel and accommodation was very nice, they had good tour guides. I would like to compliment them because they are so professionals. I like to advice other guys not to be scared to do Mount Kilimanjaro trekking because is not difficult as other people think. The most important thing is to get good tour company”

“If someone will ask me about Africa,i will tell him/her that Africa is a beautiful place. I was in Tanzania last week,and i visited several wonderful places including Mount Kilimanjaro,Serengeti,Ngorongoro and Manyara. Company which organised my tour was Enosa Expeditions which is based in Moshi Tanzania. I did not want to use Chinese or other international companies because some of my friends advised me to use local companies due to the reasons that they have a tendecy of protecting their clients and once you get any problems it will be simple to solve it. I climb Mount Kilimanjaro through Lemosho route for 7 days and our guides made sure that we reach the Summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. We also went to Serengeti,Ngorongoro and Manyara for 4 days;it was very nice to see elephants,Lions and Leopards. Enosa Expeditions offered me accomodation in a very nice hotel called Keys hotel. And they gave me an offer of visiting Lake Challa which is a very nice place for people who likes to play with water. I did not pay for that. I would like to encourage my fellow friends to visit Tanzania a very beautiful and peaceful place”

“I did Lemosho route this June 2015 with ANAPA Travel. I warmly recommend this local agency: the trip was adjusted to my personal needs (regarding budget and paying, dates of the trip etc.) due to the very friendly and service oriented tour operator Tumaini. I also had a great guide (ask for Marwa) and team on the mountain. There was nothing I could complain about. I planned the tour via internet in advance - very reliable.”

“Kilimanjaro 8 Day Shira Route Choosing a Guide Company: I chose Zara Tours, the local outfitter for Kilimanjaro because I had booked with them in the past, and was very satisfied with the level of service I received for the cost. With the exception of a “western guide” they can provide all the bells and whistles you may want to pay for -- including Gamow bags, oxygen, and pulse oximeters. The Route: I chose a special 8-day Shira itinerary because, although you drive up to Shira 1 at 11,485 ft, you avoid day 2 of the Lemosho route which is a pretty grueling day. On day 2 we did a 3-4 hour acclimatization hike and spent another night there at Shira 1. On day 3 we did another acclimatization hike up to Cathedral Peak on the way to Shira 2 at 12,600 ft, and this put us back on track with the usual 8 day Lemosho route. Zara is very good about designing a trek around your wants and needs. If it’s possible, they will do it for you. My Team: I paid for a private climb because at 52, I’m a little older than the average climber, and I didn’t want to have my climb affected by other climbers based on speed, experience, illness, or any other factor. When you undertake an expedition of this sort, personalities and experience or lack thereof can come into play. More than once I saw a climber arguing with a guide about the rest of the party being too fast or too slow, and I knew I had made the right choice. The guide basically oversees the team, and spends the day leading you to the objective camp for that day. On arrival at camp, the guide is essentially off duty other than briefing you on the next day’s objective, but my guide, Simon Parmena, was always nearby and available for anything I might need. Though I hadn’t asked for it, he carried oxygen and an oximeter just because he wanted to be able to assist any trekker in need. Talk about a work ethic! But I think what I liked the most about Simon was that he was able to read me as a trekker so well. By that, I mean he knew when I needed a break; he regularly reminded me to eat and drink; he was an excellent manager of trail time which is so important for someone like me who would stop and look at every view and rock and flower along the way and end up at camp three hours overdue. He also explained his rationale for different choices and educated me along the way. I highly recommend Simon as a guide. My cook: Robert, was responsible for preparing all meals including trail lunches for long days. He made the most delicious meals, multi-course affairs that included soup and lots of vegetables and fresh fruits at every meal. Breakfasts begin with porridge which is great the first few days, but after that, if you aren’t used to it, it gets kind of old, so this time around I brought instant oatmeal from home, and Robert gladly provided my oatmeal and toast. On day 3, even that got old, so I asked Simon if Robert might know how to make French Toast, and he said absolutely, so I had that for the rest of the trek…delicious. There’s something about having made to order French Toast while you’re climbing a mountain and sleeping in a tent. My waiter: Amiry carried all food and cooking supplies to the next camp, and then served me all evening. He was very caring and hardworking. The whole team was great, but Amiry spent the day as a porter up to the next camp, and then became the waiter at camp. I told him he was more of a butler/personal footman than just a waiter. His English was nearly as good as the guide, which is not always the case, and he went above and beyond in so many ways. Every night when it would get so cold, he made a hot-water bottle for me to sleep with; when I was particularly tired on the morning after a long day, he packed my duffels for me; he was always looking out for how much I was eating and drinking. He consistently went above and beyond his normal duties. He even came with Simon and me on summit night when usually only the guide goes and the other team members wait back at high camp. I just can’t praise Amiry enough. I’m not sure I would have made it without him. The porters Emanuel and Paolo were extremely hardworking and served as incredible inspiration when the going got tough. I remember looking up at the Barranco Wall thinking how in the world was I going to do that? Then you see the porters climbing with huge loads on their heads, and you find the courage and inspiration to move forward. Springlands Hotel: This property is your base of operations before and after the climb. It is a few km from town, but the compound is very secure behind high walls and a steel gate with 24 hr security. Once inside, it truly is an oasis with lovely gardens and a gorgeous pool area. I read negative commentary, and while I found some of the comments to be technically accurate, I felt expectations were a bit high. All too often, people travel to a developing country like Tanzania, pay $70 USD a night, and expect The Plaza. There are going to be differences here and there, but you need to have an open mind and remember where you are. Power outages are common, for example, but rarely last longer than a few minutes. Wifi is not available in rooms, but it is in the garden and dining areas, and it’s free, which is not always the case even in some top hotels. Yes, there are flies outside in the covered dining area. Care is taken to keep food covered, but you’re outside, and garden settings are going to have flies; that’s just part of being outside. Rooms vary in size and features, but are certainly comfortable. All beds have mosquito nets, and if you have any problems, the staff is ready to assist. There is also a small gift shop that carries water, snacks, souvenirs, and all the toiletries you may have left behind. Souvenir prices were fair, and saved me a trip into town. There are also spa services such as massage, facial, manicure, and pedicure at very reasonable prices. All in all the Springlands Hotel felt comfortable and secure and had everything I needed. The Tipping Ceremony: From what I saw, this event varies widely from quiet and small celebrations to loud drinking parties with singing and antics, and certificates and cash changing hands. As a private client and the only woman, I opted for the former small celebration with my team. The hotel cashier graciously got six envelopes from the bank for me, and I determined how much to give each person. The envelopes were open, and all looked inside without extensive discussion and seemed to be quite pleased. A note here, it really is important to give newer currency as cash will be worthless to them otherwise. No banks or other merchants will accept them, and the porters will be stuck waiting for another guest who is willing to trade new bills for the old. I gave new USD to the guide, waiter, and cook, and a combination of new USD and TZ Shillings to the porters. Bottom line on tipping – these people rely on tips as a significant part of their income. They work hard, and while tipping is certainly not required to the levels suggested, particularly if you are unhappy with the service, Tanzania is not like the US with the typical safeguards American workers have. Summing Up Overall the trip was fabulous. I was proud of myself for all that I accomplished and for finally getting to Uhuru Peak, and I couldn’t have done that without my team. I feel very comfortable recommending Zara Tours.”
