This Kilimanjaro trip sees us approach the ascend to the summit from the Western side, using the Lemosho route. 2 hour from Moshi lies the gates to the Lemosho gate.

The Kilimanjaro Lemosho route is a scenic route where you will pass by fertile lands of West Kilimanjaro where barley and wheat flourish. On this side of the mountain you will also pass Maasai homes. This route is considered one of the most quiet and less frequented routes. It is, however, a comparatively longer route requiring 8 days. Using 8 days will mean also that you chance of summiting the mountain increases as your body has more time to acclimatise to the heights.

The Lemosho route traverses across the Shira plateau, one of Kilimanjaro's three peaks that has been eroded to the elements with time. We will then proceed onto Barranco, into the Karanga valley, to Barafu, Stella point and finally reach Uhuru peak, Mt Kilimanjaro's highest peak at 5,895 m.

We, at Pristine Trails Adventures, are looking very much forward to taking you on an adventure of a lifetime.
