Lemosho Route

Summit Trail Adventure

Lemosho Route

Among the newer trails to grace the iconic mountain, Lemosho Route Kilimanjaro stands out for its endearing combination of challenge and scenic beauty.

As an alternative to the Shira route, Lemosho’s lower starting point offers adventurers a more gradual ascent, allowing for better Acclimatization on Kilimanjaro and increased chances of making it to the Kilimanjaro Summit. What sets the Lemosho route apart is its untouched, wild beginning, where trekkers find themselves immersed in pristine landscapes of dense rainforests teeming with life.

With its terrific scenery, varied landscapes, and high summit success rates, it’s no wonder the Mt Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route comes highly recommended by seasoned climbers and us at Rena Tours. Experience the magic of Kilimanjaro and more with the Lemosho Route – memories guaranteed.

Lemosho Route Faq’s

Equip yourself with essential information and common concerns, so that you are well-prepared for a Kilimanjaro ascent via the Lemosho Route.

Is the Lemosho route hard?

While challenging, the Lemosho Route Kilimanjaro offers a more gradual ascent compared to some other Mt Kilimanjaro Climbing Routes. This makes it a suitable choice for climbers of varying skill levels.

The Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route Map typically takes seven to eight days to complete, allowing for a gradual ascent and better acclimatization.

The Lemosho Route 7 Days boasts one of the highest summit success rates among the Routes up Kilimanjaro. This is thanks largely to its longer duration and better acclimatization.

What is the success rate of the Lemosho 6-day route?

The success rate of the Lemosho 6 Day Route can vary but is generally lower compared to longer Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing itineraries due to the shorter duration and less time for acclimatization.

The total elevation gain of the Mount Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route is approximately 4,600 meters (15,100 feet) from the starting point to the summit.

While subjective, the Machame route is often considered one of the more challenging Mt Kilimanjaro Hiking Routes due to its steep ascent profile and popularity, which can lead to crowding on the trail.
