Lemosho route is known for its premium class Kilimanjaro trekking and its wonderful views. Choosing it as your trekking option you will get a unique fusion of the most amazing landscapes and easy acclimatization. On this route, you'll see breathtaking views from Lava Tower, Barranco Camp, and Karanga Camp.

6-day Lemosho starts with the high-altitude drop-off by off-road vehicles at 3.500 m (alpine zone) and skips a stopover at Shira 1 Camp where you'd stay the night on a 7-day program. This 6-day variation is generally more exciting for regular hikers or those that regularly do cardio work-outs like jogging. Success rates on 6-day Lemosho are about 80%.

Successful summiting chances are the highest from all the 6-day routes!
