  • Spend 8-days climbing to the top of Kilimanjaro along the Lemosho Route.

  • Marvel at the exquisite views during the climb and from the summit.


At 5,895 meters, Kilimanjaro is a truly massive peak. Furthermore, where it is positioned, amidst forest and flat lands in Tanzania, it looks even more incredible. Thus, why it has become such a hugely popular climbing destination. And, on this 8-day climbing expedition, we would like to guide you to the top of the great mountain by way of the Lemosho Route.

The Lemosho Route is widely considered to be the best route to the top of Kilimanjaro. New and incredibly scenic, this route will absolutely take your breath away. It is also quite a remote route still. As a result, you won’t have to worry about the crowds that come with the older, more established routes. Hence making your experience even more magical.

Throughout this trip’s 8 climbing days, you will get to admire the beautiful surroundings leading up to the mountain, including the Shira Plateau, and so much more. And, as we climb, you will get to marvel at the truly spectacular views.

During the evenings, we will be sleeping in various camp sites, where you can gaze up at the stars that will seem nearer to you than ever before.

While not a technically difficult route, climbing along the Lemosho Route is nonetheless physical taxing. As a result, participants on this trip should be in good physical condition.

Climbing to the top of Kilimanjaro is an experience you will never forget. To join us during this adventure, please send a request.

We also offer a shorter, 7-day version of this ascent along the Lemosho Route, which you can enjoy here.
