Ten Days Kilimanjaro Climbing Lemosho Route

(Day time hike optional) Lemosho route 8 days climb – The Lemosho Route is widely considered to be the best route on Mount Kilimanjaro. It has been a bit long ago, there were only two main routes used to climb Kilimanjaro – the Marangu (Coca Cola) route and the Machame (Whiskey) route. Lemosho, a relatively new route, and perfect route due to its beauty, remoteness and success rate. In short, it maximizes the chances that a climber will reach the summit, and enjoy the experience overall.

The first two days of this route take you through the lush rainforest before you emerge into heath and moorland then join the Machame Route on the third day. This narrow trail, which begins on the Western side of Kilimanjaro, has some very steep and undulating sections. Hikers overnight in tents

Our travel service will make your visit to East Africa unforgettable. We also take you to the white sunny and sandy beaches of Zanzibar, where you can cool down after a long trek up a mountain or a safari.
