Lemosho route ten day itenerary
Lemosho is Considered to be the most scenic of all the Kilimanjaro routes, Lemosho is a newer and less-travelled route. It’s perfect for somebody looking to get off the beaten track! The six-day route is for those who don’t have time to waste but who want to avoid the crowds you would find on Machame or Marangu.The route is also considered one of the easier routes on Kilimanjaro, as its longer itinerary allows for better acclimatization. However, hikers will still need to ascend the Barranco Wall and climb steeply on summit night.
The 8 day Lemosho climb gives one of the highest success rates, rather than trying to squeeze the climb into 7 days. The extra day allows for a shorter pre-summit day, meaning that you arrive at base camp by lunch time, fuel up with food, and tuck up in your tent to rest for what will be a tough summit ascent starting at midnight. No technical climbing is required, but a good level of fitness is recommended – (Lemosho route six day itenerary)
