Views of Mawenzi, vast, ice-filled valleys, rolling deserts - it's no wonder Lemosho is considered the most scenic route to Mount Kilimanjaro. Another bonus is lower volumes of foot traffic and higher rates of summit success, making it the preferred route for climbers with varying degrees of expertise.

  • Wander through the Lemosho Glades
  • Tramp across the Shira Plateau
  • Witness a magical sunset from Barranco Hut
  • Follow the crater rim around to Uhuru Peak

Kilimanjaro - Lemosho Route Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Moshi

Situated on the lower slopes of Kilimanjaro, Moshi is a small but vibrant Tanzanian town.

Day 2 Mti Mkubwa Camp

Today the trekking begins. It is a 3 to 4 hour walk, ascending quite steeply through the forest, until a camp is made in a forest clearing dominated by a large tree – this is Mti Mkubwa camp at 2,800 metres. Also known as 'Big Tree Camp'.

Day 3 Shira 1 Camp

Head up to the Shira Plateau. From our overnight campsite we will cross a small valley and continue up along a steep ridge, through open moorland. The peak of Kilimanjaro lays straight ahead, an inspiring site on what can be a challenging day’s walk.

Day 4 Shira 2 Camp

Journey uphill to reach the Shira Two hut at 3,800 m. Today will be a gentle walk east toward Kibo's glaciered peak.

Day 5 Barranco Camp

An important acclimatisation day, travel up to 4250 metres before spending the night at Barranco (3950m).

Day 6 Karanga Valley

Expect brilliant views of Kibo's southern glaciers if the weather is clear. There's a pleasant lunch stop by the river in the Karanga Valley. Climb the Barranco Wall and then follow the Kibo South Circuit.

Day 7 Barafu Camp

Head up to the intersection of the South Circuit and the Mweka route where we’ll start climbing up a ridge for a further two hours to Barafu Hut.

Day 8 Uhuru Peak

Embark on the most challenging and, in turn, rewarding portion of the trek. Hike to Stella Point, 5,750 m, then continue on to Uhuru Peak.

Days 9-10 Moshi

From Mweka down to the park gate, is a 3 to 4 hour walk through the rainforest, which may be slippery in patches
