Kilimanjaro Safari Trekking 

 Lemosho Route 

 9 days / 8 nights 

 Kilimanjaro – Route Lemosho


It is the least traveled and most challenging route of all, but it is also the one with the most beautiful path. Go through the western gap of the mountain, to the Shira plateau. This route has several days for the acclimatization to be progressive and to increase the possibilities of completing the entire route. This path allows you to enjoy climbing through forests and moors, and explore the deserts of the mountain while at the same time enjoying spectacular views.


If you want a great challenge, be in full contact with nature and camping, the route Lemosho is the most beautiful in your expedition to Kilimanjaro
