Lemosho Route

The Lemosho Route tackles the mountain from the west and uses different ascent and descent paths, allowing you to experience a wider range of spectacular views along the way. The trek begins in the Lemosho Glades at 2100m and climbs the mountain over seven days – a slow enough ascent to give you the best possible chance of acclimatising and reaching the summit. The trek is eight days in total, including summit day and the descent.

Rongai Route

We also trek on the Rongai Route. Like Lemosho, this is a little-used trail with spectacular scenery and different ascent and descent paths. Beginning at Nale Moru (1950m) on the northern side of Kilimanjaro, we make our ascent over five days. The trek is six days in total, including the descent. Our Rongai ascent is shorter than Lemosho because we will already have completed a four-day acclimatization trek on 4562m Mount Meru beforehand, enabling a safe ascent of Kilimanjaro over just five days.
