9-day Kilimanjaro trek via the Lemosho route with overnight at Crater Camp

9-day Kilimanjaro trek via the Lemosho route with overnight at Crater Camp | undefined

Enjoy a 9-day ascent of Kilimanjaro by way of the Lemosho Route that includes an overnight stay at the Crater Camp with one of our certified guides.


9 Days





* Spend 9 days climbing to the top of Kilimanjaro.

* Scale the mountain along the highly regarded Lemosho Route.

* Spend your nights in different camps, including the Crater Camp.


For 9 unforgettable days, we would like to guide you to the summit of Kilimanjaro (5,895m) along the Lemosho Route. Furthermore, during this expedition, you will also get to spend a night in the gorgeous Crater Camp, near the top of the great mountain.

Widely considered to be the best route for climbers wishing to scale Kilimanjaro, the Lemosho Route will take your breath away. Full of outstanding spots where you can enjoy amazing views of not just the mountain, but the far reaching Tanzanian landscape, it will seem like every step on the route is its own adventure. Furthermore, the route is very popular due to the high success rate climbers who take it have in reaching the summit. It is also a more remote route. Thus, leading to less crowding that can be found on other routes like the Marangu Route.

Throughout this trip, you will be spending your nights in various camps, including the Crater Camp. Each camp provides its own experience. Each camp has its own set of viewpoints, as well as its own character as they’ve been visited by hundreds of thousands of climbers over the years.

Needless to say, when climbing a mountain as enormous as Kilimanjaro, participants should be in good physical condition.

Scaling Kilimanjaro along the Lemosho Route is a fantastic journey, and when you add in a night in the Crater Camp, the journey gets even better. To experience it for yourself, please send a request.

We also offer an 8-day ascent of Kilimanjaro via the Northern Circuit Route.
