The Lemosho Route is widely considered to be the best route on Mount Kilimanjaro and a relatively new route, is preferred by reputable operators due to its beauty, remoteness and success rate. In short, it maximizes the chances that a climber will reach the summit, and enjoy the experience overall. We begin from the west, trekking in the fertile rainforest until we reach the wildflowers of the heath ecosystem. Approaching from the west, we cross one of the most beautiful areas on Kilimanjaro, the Shira Plateau, before traversing the mountain along the southern circuit.
The trek using the Lemosho route starts above the Londorosi Gate, already at an altitude of 2360 metres. This route takes longer, is often considered to be the most scenically-varied, and as a newer route, it experiences lower numbers of trekkers. More time is spent in the atmospheric rainforest and the extra time spent acclimatizing means a high success rate in reaching the summit. All that we all want is that you to have the best possible Kilimanjaro climb experience!
