On this route we approach the mountain from the west by the lightly-used Lemosho route. Many guides consider this ascent to be both easier and more beautiful than any other trail and it retains a real sense of unspoilt wilderness. We travel through forest and moorland from the west, crossing the caldera of Shira volcano and exploring the rock formations of the plateau, before traversing beneath the southern icefields of Kibo. The eight day itinerary gives the absolute maximum possible acclimatization and also gives us an unusual view of the montane forest, before converging with other routes and making the final ascent by the Barafu route.
We have our own dedicated Kilimanjaro team, led by Samson Lauwo, the great grandson of the famous 'Mzee Lauwo' who led Hans Mayer, the first European to summit the mountain in 1889.
Having our own team means we can easily arrange a trek on any date you wish, and accommodate your trekking needs.
For our Kilimanjaro treks we can pick you up from either Kilimanjaro Airport or Arusha Airport. The treks include airport transfers, two nights bed and breakfast, all park fee's, camping equipment, 3 meals a day and the services of our expert guides, porters and cooks.
