  • Beautiful scenery and high success rate of getting to the summit
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.
Camping
3 hours from Moshi lies the Londrossi gate. Here we complete park formalities and then drive to the trail head, Lemosho glades (2,389m) from where we trek to Mti Mkubwa (Big Tree camp, 2,785m).
Camping
Today we enter the heather and moorland zone coming onto Shira Plateau and spend the night at the Shira 1 camp (3,504m).
Camping
We trek past the Cathedral and onto Shira 2 Camp (3,895m). At Shira 2 Camp we will hike around the camp area in order to acclimatize.
Camping
Today, we pass the Lava Tower (4,627m) and down to Barranco Camp (3,986m). This is an important day where you will acclimatize by gaining elevation and coming down steeply.
Camping
We begin with a vertical scramble up the Barranco wall (breakfast wall) and on to Karanga Camp (4,034m).
Camping
This is the camp before the ascent to Uhuru Peak, which we will begin at midnight.
Camping
We begin our summit attempt to Uhuru peak (5,895m) at midnight, 12:00 am. The trek should take us 6 hours, arriving at the summit to see the sunrise. We return to Barafu hut where we have a short rest and then we proceed down to Mweka Camp (3,106m).
Today is our final trek down to Mweka gate (1,633m) where we meet our
transport back to Moshi town. We will say a big farewell to our guides, especially to our porters, and collect our Kilimanjaro certificates.
