8 days Climb Mount Kilimanjaro via Lemosho Route

The lemosho route Kilimanjaro is the longest of the outfield routes, and sometimes regarded as the second timers Kilimanjaro route, although it is also for anyone with an appetite for a quieter trail and a more remote atmosphere. Most hikers often say that the beauty of the Lemosho route Kilimanjaro is due to the fact that the route is a little less accessible than the Machame Route. The other added bonus of the Lemosho route ilimanjaro is that more time is spent hiking on the Shira Plataue thus allowing a greater chance of acclimitisation.
