This is a lesser known route which usually begins on the western side of Mount Kilimanjaro. Lemosho route is one of the newer routes on the mountain, and a superb choice for your climb. It is our preferred route due to its ideal balance of low traffic, beautiful scenery and a high summit success rate. Most of our clients use this route and love it.

The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the west, beginning with a long drive from Moshi to Londorossi Gate. From there, the first two days are spent trekking through the rainforest to Shira Ridge.

Unlike the popular Machame route, which simply intersects the Shira Plateau, the Lemosho route crosses the entirety of the plain from west to east in a pleasant, relatively flat hike. An added bonus is that climbers will 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. Descent is made via the Mweka route.

Great guides - great trip
“We actually took the 8 day trek. At age 65 we thought an extra day would be helpful. In actuality it was not needed. The trails while sometimes steep were well maintained. We were often in camp by 1400 even though we hiked slowly to conserve energy for ascent. We found the ascent challenging and were not as prepared for the cold as we should have been. In fact once the sun went down it was generally cold; bring more warm clothes than you think. We chose Lemosho route because it traversed the forest ecoregion and thoroughly enjoyed the trek”

Great Experience w/ Great Guides
“After long wanting to attempt climbing Kilimanjaro, we finally took the step of booking a trek with Enosa Expeditions. Our journey began in early January 2021. Upon arriving in Tanzania, we met Eric and Wilfred, the two (incredible) guides that would be leading us on this journey. They were well-informed and made sure to offer a comprehensive breakdown of what the coming days would offer and how to be best prepared, whether it was clothing, equipment, or merely preparing yourself mentally. All-in-all, the experience was truly remarkable, and the unwavering guidance, support, and enjoyment provided by our two guides along the way made the experience all the more worthwhile. For anyone trying to decide between the array of operators on the mountain, I can highly recommend using Enosa Expeditions. If you do, be sure to request that Eric and Wilfred guide you - with these two guys, you can feel comfortable that not only will you successfully make the journey to the roof of Africa, but you will have an awesome time doing it.”
