  • Description :
    he Lemosho is considered to be the most beautiful route on Kilimanjaro. Lemosho Route is our favorite route because it offers a great balance of low traffic, scenic views and a high summit success rate, over 80%. 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. It also offers great acclimatization as it takes more days to climb. Lemosho route takes between 7 and 10 days to climb.
