Kilimanjaro Climb-Lemosho Route 7 Days Itinerary
Kilimanjaro Climbing

DAY 1: Arrive in Tanzania we stay at Moivaro lodge, which is a beautiful lodge located on the lower slopes of Mount Meru and is a perfect place to prepare you for adventure.
DAY 2: After completing the neccessary registration formalities at Londorossi National Park gate, we drive through varied farmland with open views over the plains to reach the Lemosho roadhead. The last section of the road is of poor quality and difficult to drive after rain, sometimes we start walking a kilometre or two below the roadhead. We often have our lunch at the roadhead before starting to walk. It is an easy day of walking up a small path through beautiful and lush forest. We camp at Lemosho Big Tree Camp (2,650 m); [2-3 hours walking].
DAY 3: We soon leave the forest behind and enter the moorland zone of giant heather. The trail climbs steadily with wide views to reach the rim of the Shira Plateau. There is a tangible sense of wilderness, especially if afternoon mists come in! We walk part way across the plateau to Shira One Camp (3,550 m) [6-8 hours walking].
DAY 4: A morning of sustained ascent and panoramic views brings us to lunch near the Lava Tower junction (4,550 m.). The trail then descends to the bottom of the Great Barranco valley (3,900 m); another spectacular campsite sheltered by towering cliffs and with extensive views of the plains far below. [7-9 hours walking].
DAY 5: A steep climb up the Barranco Wall leads us to an undulating trail on the south-eastern flank of Kibo, with superb vistas of the Southern Icefields. The terrain changes to scree, with pockets of lush vegetation in sheltered hollows, and there is only a short distance to our camp at Karanga (4,000 m), the last water point on the way to the summit. [4-5 hours walking].
DAY 6: We follow an easy path on compacted scree with wide views that gains altitude unrelentingly to reach the Barafu campsite (4,600 m) for lunch. There is a short acclimatisation walk to the plateau at the bottom of the South-East valley (4,800 m). The remainder of the day is spent resting in preparation for the final ascent before a very early night. [3-5 hours walking].
DAY 7: We will start our ascent by torchlight at about 1 a.m. so that we can be up on the Crater rim by sunrise. The steep climb over loose volcanic scree has some well-graded zig-zags and a slow but steady pace will take us to Stella Point (5,735 m), in about five or six hours. We will rest there for a short time to enjoy the sunrise over Mawenzi. Those who are still feeling strong can make the two hour round trip from here along the crater rim to Uhuru Peak (5,896 m), passing close to the spectacular glaciers and ice cliffs that still occupy most of the summit area. The descent to Barafu is surprisingly fast, and after some refreshment, we continue to descend to reach Millenium Camp (3,800 m). [10-15 hours walking].
DAY 8: A sustained descent through lovely forest with lush undergrowth takes us to the National Park gate at Mweka (1,650 m); and on through coffee and banana farms to Mweka village. [4-6 hours walking].
DAY 9: After saying bye to our then you need a private departure transfer which is included from the hotel to Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) for your flight, unless you have an option to do a short safari or any other option we will discuss.
