Trekking Overview :

Get ready for an adventure of a lifetime as you climb Mount Kilimanjaro via the treacherous but ultimately rewarding Lemosho Route over the course of eight days. At the beginning of your journey, when you arrive at Londorossi Gate, which is located at an elevation of around 2,250 metres, you will be greeted by knowledgeable guides and a committed support crew. On day one of the tour, you will travel through the verdant rainforests of Kilimanjaro National Park before arriving at Mti Mkubwa, which is located at an altitude of roughly 2,780 metres and provides the ideal atmosphere for acclimatisation. On Day 2, after travelling through the varied landscapes of rainforests, moorlands, and the expansive Shira Plateau, you will arrive at Shira 1 Camp, which is located at around 3,500 metres. On Day 3, the journey continues as you make your way up to Moir Hut, which is located at an elevation of around 4,200 metres and is renowned for its distinctive high-altitude ecosystems and charming mountain ambiance. On day 4, you will make your way to the towering Lava Tower, which is located at 4,600 metres and offers stunning panoramic panoramas. After seeing the tower, you will descend for more acclimatisation. The next day, Day 5, will be spent acclimatising to higher elevations by exploring the alpine terrain that surrounds Moir Hut. On day six, after getting some well-earned rest, climb to Barafu Camp, which is the last halt before making an effort to reach the summit. The seventh and final day is the culmination of the journey, and it begins with an early hike to Uhuru Peak, the highest point at 5,895 metres, where a breathtaking sunrise is awaiting the travellers.

DAY 1: Londorossi Gate to Mti Mkubwa

At the Londorossi Gate, where you will be greeted by your guides and support staff, the beginning of your adventure up Mount Kilimanjaro will commence. Before beginning your journey, you will have to complete park registration and admission procedures roughly 2,250 metres above sea level. After that, you may begin your journey. As you make your way to Mti Mkubwa, also known as Big Tree Camp, which is located at around 2,780 metres, the journey takes you through the breathtaking rainforests of Kilimanjaro National Park. Your first campground is a tranquil spot where you can relax and get used to the higher altitude as you continue on your journey.

Day 2: Mti Mkubwa to Shira 1 Camp

After departing from the Mti Mkubwa Camp, you will continue climbing to the Shira 1 Camp, which is located at an altitude of roughly 3,500 metres. During the course of the day’s excursion, you will leave the rainforest zone and enter the moorland. This will give you the opportunity to observe the varied plants that can be found on Kilimanjaro. As you get closer to Shira 1 Camp, the terrain will start to change, and you’ll find that you’re surrounded by the magnificent panoramas of the Shira Plateau.

Day 3: Shira 1 Camp to Moir Hut

After leaving Shira 1 Camp, the next stop on the journey is Moir Hut, which is located at an altitude of around 4,200 metres. The high-altitude ecosystems of Kilimanjaro are home to a variety of plants and animals that are found nowhere else on Earth. The Moir Hut, with its breathtaking panoramas and rustic allure, is the ideal location for becoming used to the surrounding environment and being ready for the next difficulties.

Day 4: Moir Hut to Lava Tower

Following the trail that takes you from Moir Hut, you will arrive to Lava Tower, an impressively tall feature that is located 4,600 metres away. The ascent to Lava Tower offers a chance to acclimatise, and once you reach the top, you will be treated to views that are nothing short of stunning. Once you have reached Lava Tower, you will return to your base camp for the night, which will help your body get used to the higher altitude even more.

DAY 5: Moir Hut to Lava Tower

This day is set out for further exploring the region surrounding Moir Hut, which will give you time to acclimate to the higher elevation before you proceed with your climb. While you are successfully acclimatising to the higher elevations, you will have the chance to take in the untamed grandeur of Kilimanjaro’s mountainous environment.

Day 6: Karanga Camp to Barafu Camp

You will start your hike at Karanga Camp, which is located at an altitude of around 4,000 metres, and make your way to Barafu Camp, which is located at an altitude of approximately 4,600 metres. As you get closer to Barafu Camp, which is the last stop before you make an effort to reach the summit, the scenery will become more arid. As you get ready to embark on the arduous climb to Uhuru Peak, your enthusiasm level will continue to rise.

Day 7: Barafu Camp to Uhuru Peak

You have arrived at the most important day of your journey. After an early morning departure from Barafu Camp, you will begin your ascent to Uhuru Peak, which is the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and sits at an altitude of 5,895 metres. When you finally reach the top, you’ll be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the dawn, an event that will forever be ingrained in your mind. After you’ve celebrated your success, you’ll start your descent and make your way to Mweka Camp, which is located at an altitude of around 3,100 metres. Here, you’ll have some time to relax and think about the incredible adventure you’ve just completed.

Day 8: Mweka Camp to Mweka Gate

The last part of your journey leads you from Mweka Camp to Mweka Gate, which is located at an elevation of around 1,650 metres and is the point at which your Kilimanjaro hike comes to an end. The descent will take you back to the verdant rainforest zone, which will provide a striking contrast to the arid alpine desert and the top that you have recently climbed. At the Mweka Gate, you will collect your certificate of achievement and say goodbye to the hardworking guides and support personnel that helped you along the way.
