Lemosho Route

The Lemosho route is one of the newer routes on Mount Kilimanjaro, and a superb choice for your climb.

It is our preferred route to the summit of Kilimanjaro due to its ideal balance of low traffic, beautiful scenery and a high summit success rate.

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 of Kilimanjaro 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 of Mount Kilimanjaro is made via the Mweka route.
