8 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route

(3 customer reviews)
Tour is rated as #9 in destination Arusha

Lemosho Route is the longest of the standard routes, and is, without doubt, the most beautiful. Expect some of the most extraordinary scenery anywhere in Africa, with well-preserved forests, sweeping moorland, heather forests, and high desert. Lemosho Route also offers easy walking days and plenty of opportunity for altitude adjustment. The route approaches the summit from the west via the Londorossi Gate and one of the most remote quarters of the region. The trailhead is a little more difficult to reach, so Lemosho can sometimes be a more expensive option.
