Kilimanjaro climbing via Lemosho route 8 days (6-8-day climb + 2 days in a hotel from $1983)
Lemosho is our personal first choice for ascending to the roof of Africa because it offers enthralling beautiful views, pure wildlife, great acclimatization opportunities, and little climber traffic.
You will reach the western slope of Mount Kilimanjaro and be on your way to the renowned Shira Plateau after a four-hour drive from Moshi to Londorossi Gate. You will start your journey there and go through all temperature zones, from alpine meadows to endless ice. The smoothest and most gradual climb up Kilimanjaro has the best success rate.
Depending on how much time you have available, you can pick from six, seven, or eight-day programs. Always go for longer programs over shorter ones for improved acclimatization.
The 6- and 7-day Lemosho itineraries begin with a high-altitude drop-off; you will be transported by an off-road vehicle to an elevation of 3,500 m/11,500 f before beginning the hike from there. This is done to maximize the transition to acclimatization; the higher you start, the simpler it will be to adjust.
