Mt Kilimanjaro Group Climb via Lemosho route (8+2 days)
This is an open group mountaineering to the summit of Kilimanjaro via the Lemosho route. Upon arrival to JRO international airport, you will be picked up and transferred to a lodge where you will rest and prepare for the climb on the next day.
The Lemosho route is among the very unfrequented route. During your climb, you will spend a night in the crater which is a good way to acclimatize and increase your chances of a successfully summiting.
You will climb the mountain and descend back in a total of 8 days and you will spend 2 nights at a lodge (1 night before the climb and 1 night after the climb). This will maximize your chances of summiting as you will have a more spaced out itinerary compared to our other ascents.
