The Routes

Lemosho Route:
Lemosho route approaches the summit from the west by the lightly-used Lemosho route. Lemosho route is considered to be easier and more beautiful than any other trail and it retains a real sense of unspoilt wilderness. We travel through forest and moorland from the west, crossing the caldera of Shira volcano and exploring the rock formations of the plateau.
The 9 days route gives a complete maximum time to acclimatization and also gives the perfect view of the glaciers on the crater rim, before joining with other routes and making the final ascent to the top.

Machame Route
This route approaches summit through forest from the west and joins the other trekking routes before traversing beneath the southern icefields of Kibo. The rainforest is extremely beautiful. The 7 days route gives a complete maximum time to acclimatization, and also gives the perfect view of the Barranco walls.

Marangu Route
Marangu route is the most popular ascending route and is well established route on Kilimanjaro and is the perfect for those with no camping experience.
Marangu is only route that has the luxury of sleeping huts along the way with evening meals taken in a communal dining area. There are even showers (cold) and some flush toilets, which to some are actually a bit of a luxury on the mountain.

Umbwe Route
The shortest route on the Mountain, the path can also be a very muddy experience, particularly if it has rained recently! It’s a steep and rough trail up to the first camp, Umbwe Cave. The route is offering a real sense of adventure for the intrepid climbers
