Climbing Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route

7 Days Lemosho Route Trekking

The 7 days Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route is one of most scenic trails on the west of Kilimanjaro and it is a virtual climate expedition. The shallow mountain stream wanders peacefully through the Barranco Valley’s bottom amid the clouds. Frosting shields the valleys whilst the azure glaciers extravagantly scatter across the landscape of the ice fields. Immature trees flourish amongst the towering emerald canopies and the lush vegetation conceals the moist floors.

The 7 days Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route is one of most scenic trails on the west of Kilimanjaro and it is a virtual climate expedition. The shallow mountain stream wanders peacefully through the Barranco Valley’s bottom amid the clouds. Frosting shields the valleys whilst the azure glaciers extravagantly scatter across the landscape of the ice fields. Immature trees flourish amongst the towering emerald canopies and the lush vegetation conceals the moist floors. Thick shadows cast down from the bright sun. Faint buffalo trails are carved into the smooth grounds of the Shira Plateau and milky white mist, clings to and enrobes everything it can. You will encounter the stunning sights of the Lava Tower and scramble up the impressive Barranco wall. There is a slight chance of spotting some magnificent wildlife along the leisurely trail. The 7 days Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route provides optimal conditions for acclimatisation which increases your chance of reaching the glorious summit.
