The Lemosho Route

The Lemosho Route is widely considered to be the best route on Mount Kilimanjaro. Lemosho, a relatively new route, is favoured due to its beauty, remoteness and success rate.

Our adventure in March 2015 took us on the "Northern Circuit" variation, which circles around the northern face of Kilimanjaro before re-joining the track at Third Cave camp.

The "Northern Circuit" variation.

 

The trek begins at Londorossi Gate, located in the western base of mountain, within its lush, fertile rainforest.

The route heads across the Shira Plateau, before circling along the southern circuit halfway around the mountain, exposing the climber to great views from all angles.

The approach to the summit is made from the east, and the descent follows the Mweka trail.
