About
The Lemosho Route is relatively new. It starts on the Western side of Mount Kilimanjaro at the Londorossi Gate and was introduced as an alternative to the Shira Route which begins at a higher, more challenging altitude. The Londorossi Gate is a fair drive from the town of Moshi, and considerably further from Arusha. At the gate, you will register with the authorities before being driven a further 12km to the starting point. The western side of Kilimanjaro is still very wild and you may get lucky and spot large antelope, buffalo and maybe even elephant. The Lemosho Route joins the Machame Route at Lava Tower and heads down towards Barranco Valley via the Southern Circuit (see map below). As with the Machame Route, Lemosho trekkers need to transverse the Barranco Wall and then summit from Barafu Camp. The descent is via the Mweka route.

Our original plan was to climb Mt Kilimanjaro in January 2019, but we had to postpone our trip for family health reasons and Intrepid Explorer Tanzania was able to defer our trip for more than a year at no cost. Thanks Wence!

We were a party of two guys in good physical shape. We climbed the mountain on the Lemosho route with a party of 2 guides and 10 porters. The guides, Shafi and Nuru, tailored the pace based on our ability, so we completed the climb in 6 days. The guides were knowledgeable and answered all our questions about the mountain, it's flora and fauna. On the assent morning, they timed our start so that we would arrive at the summit at dawn, it was well planned and implemented. They hiked with us at all times and were engaging and interesting companions. The porters worked hard to break and set-up camp three times a day, the food was surprisingly good considering everything was carried by hand on the mountain.

Would consider using ear plugs as some of larger camps were noisy at night. I also recommend paying for a private toilet!

Overall, it was a great experience, I wholeheartedly recommend Intrepid Explorer Tanzania for organizing a climb of Mt Kilimanjaro!
