10-day Kilimanjaro – Lemosho Route
The Lemosho route is regarded as the most scenic route on Kilimanjaro, offering panoramic views from all sides of the mountain. This route strikes a nice balance between low crowds (for the first couple of days), beautiful scenery, and a high summit success rate.
The Lemosho Route starts off on the western flank of Kilimanjaro, offering spectacular views of Mt Meru and the plains of Kenya’s Amboseli National Park. Your first day takes you through a dense rainforest, that gradually thins out with each upward step and by day two you can already see the summit of Kilimanjaro, glistening in the distance. On the third day, the route joins the Machame Route and a long, but rewarding, the road lies ahead until you reach the summit. The extra day on this 8-day trek gives you the opportunity to better acclimatise, thus increasing your chances of reaching the top.
The hike itself takes 7 nights, but you’ll need an extra 2 nights to get to and from Meru View Hotel. The extra day on this 10-day trek gives you the opportunity to better acclimatise, thus increasing your chances of reaching the top.
We also have a shorter 9-day Lemosho route group climb.
