Mount Kilimanjaro via Lemosho Route

The Lemosho Route is known to be the longest route and popular due to the fact that it is a beautiful route to ascend this mountain. You will see some of the most extraordinary scenery with well-preserved forests, sweeping moorland, heather forests and high desert. Lemosho Route allows for easy walking and provides plenty of opportunity for altitude adjustment.

The route approaches the summit from the west via the Londorossi Gate and one of the most remote quarters of the region.
