8 Days Lemosho Route with Crater Camp.


Lemosho route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the west. You can have the scope to visit the Shira Plateau and Shira Caldera, if you are travelling in this route. The route crosses from Shira Ridge to Shira 2 camp and after this it joins with the same route. Till joining the Machame, the visitors would enjoy the low traffic, but the vast vistas of the scenic beauty would make you excited. After this both Lemosho and the Machame would pass through Lava Tower, Barranco and Barafu sharing some of the best view points of the southern circuit.

The minimum days for the summiting is 7 days, but 8 days is recommended as it will give more chance to acclimatize and achieve the summit. but 8 days is recommended as it will give more chance to acclimatize and achieve the summit. As Lemosho passes through some of the most spectacular landscapes like the rain forest at the beginning, the spectacular Shira Plateau and together with Machame it shows some of the best view points of the Southern Circuit, it is considered to be one of the scenically most beautiful routes to the summit of Kilimanjaro.

Lemosho has low crowds until it combines with Machame. Lemosho is highly recommended and it has an abundance of wildlife such as elephant, buffalo, eland and lion which come over to forage during dry season from Longido game controlled area. Because the starting point is far from Moshi, it is more expensive to climb this route due to the added transportation cost of getting hikers to the gate. A vehicle is used to bring hikers to the gate, where the trail begins in the montane rainforest.

Lemosho trekkers have a longer distance to shield in the tropical rain forest ecosystem than other routes, and as a result hikers do not exit the rainforest until the end of day two. This plan means that the Lemosho route is a longer route, usually taking 7 to 8 days to complete.

Kilimanjaro Climb - 8 Days Umbwe Route


The notorious 8 Days Umbwe Route is our newest tour and the toughest route to tame the summit of Kilimanjaro. If you’re an experienced, bold climber you’ll relish challenging yourself on the unforgiving but uncrowded and beautiful terrain. You’ll enjoy breathtaking sights that few travellers see. You’ll experience the raw, primitive beauty of sun bleached rocky outcrops and balance along knife-edge ridges with water-carved ravines swooping giddily below. You’ll clamber upon the gnarled tree roots of ancient rainforest trails, traverse ice fields shimmering like frosted diamonds in the African sun, and sleep under sweeping star-filled skies. You’ll skirt round the dangerous mist-clad Western Breach, crossing each grade of alpine and glacier zone. Every moment will be a feast to your senses and a challenge to your body and character. The Umbwe Route is like no other; a test of endurance amongst the majesty and grace of Kilimanjaro. As you stand proudly on Uhuru Peak at sunrise, you can say that you have conquered Umbwe. Although not technical, this route is arduous and the steep but short physical climb early on in the tour means there’s no time for altitude acclimatization. If you’re undecided or less experienced, try our Machame Route; more gentle but just as amazing.
