Lemosho 7 Days Package

7 Days Lemosho Route

Overview          

The Lemosho route starts off from the west, beginning with a long drive from Moshi to Londorossi Gate. From there, the first two days are spent trekking through the lush rainforest to Shira Plateau. This may be the most beautiful route to take, with breathtaking views on all sides of the mountain and if you wanted a more private experience with fewer climbers. This is one of the few routes where an armed ranger accompanies our groups, since there are still animals in the forest around the Lemosho Glades. We recommend minimum of 7 days but 8 days is preferable for better acclimatization and summit success.

A relatively new route up to the mountain and extremely beautiful. It’s our favourite routes because;-

It offers a great balance of high summit success rate, scenic views and Low traffic.
