9 Day Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route

One of the least traveled routes, you will have the first few days of the climb almost entirely to yourself! This route is very beautiful, clean from litter, and not overcrowded. The Lemosho route was designed by the famous mountaineer, Scott Fisher, in order to maximize acclimatization.

From the trailhead, you reach the summit on day 7, and this route offers frequent ascents and descents which are very helpful to your acclimatization process. Also unique to this route, you get to camp at the crater just below the summit among the glaciers! This means that in addition to getting to see parts of the mountain and glaciers that others miss out on, your summit day is also shorter.

Summit day starts at 5 or 6 am, usually resulting in a summit around noon, and arriving to camp at 2 pm – with plenty of daylight left to explore the glaciers! All other routes leave camp at midnight the evening before to summit at 6 am, then descend back down the mountain that same day. The Lemosho – Crater route allows 2 extra days to descend.
