Geography

Lemosho starts from the lush, fertile rainforest. The dense green rainforest is the first ecological zone you encounter on Kilimanjaro. The route heads up across the Shira Plateau, which was Kilimanjaro’s third peak before it collapsed. Then the Lava Tower is seen before dropping into Barranco Valley, which is one of the most beautiful areas of the entire trail. After crossing the Barranco Wall, the summit attempt is made from Barafu. This is the coldest, breezy section of your entire adventure.

Uniquiness

  • The Lemosho route is the most beautiful route presenting panoramic vistas.
  • This rising traverse on the most appealing route on the mountain is designed with maximum acclimatization and summit success in mind.
