8-Days Kilimanjaro Climb Lemosho Route with Crater Overnight

Description for 8-Days Kilimanjaro Climb Lemosho Route with Crater Overnight

Kilimanjaro Lemosho path is regarded as Kilimanjaro’s most beautiful trail, offering panoramic views from all sides of the mountain.

Lemosho is a great option for your climb since it is one of the newest routes. Because of its perfect mix of low people, gorgeous scenery, and a high summit success rate, it is our favorite route.

The majority of our customers climb Kilimanjaro through the Lemosho route, and they have nothing but positive things to say about it.

We strongly advise our customers to use the Lemosho route. At a height of 2360 meters, the ascent starts at Londorossi Gate, with an approach far to the west of the mountain.

It then surrounds Kilimanjaro to the south, going through lush rainforest where some of the region’s most unusual species may be found. The trail continues up to Shira Ridge, the mountain’s third peak.

Although it is a little difficult, Lemosho 7 days is also suggested. Although no technical climbing is needed, it is suggested that you have a decent level of fitness.
