Kilimanjaro
Lemosho route

This is the full Kilimanjaro experience. The Lemosho route on Kilimanjaro offers spectacular nature and enough time to acclimatize; a fantastic route.

You start at the village of Lemosho on the west side of Kilimanjaro and walk through the rainforest to Shira Plateau. You continue by walking beneath the snowy summit from Kibo to Uhuru Peak (the summit).

Route details

You can walk the Lemosho route in 8 or 9 days. Both offer good opportunities for acclimatization.

The route starts lower and you walk longer between 3500 and 4000 meters. Along the way, you occasionally walk a little higher, giving your body time to adjust to that height.
We don’t recommend a 7-day route because in that case, the last 2 days are merged into 1, leaving you with hardly any time to rest before climbing to the top.
