Trekking  Overview :

Get ready for an experience that will change your life as you climb Mount Kilimanjaro via the breathtaking Lemosho Route over the course of nine days. Your voyage will begin at Lemosho Glades, which is located at an elevation of 2,385 metres. Here, you will be surrounded by a verdant rainforest, which will serve as the backdrop for an unforgettable excursion. The second day of the trek takes you to Shira 1 Camp at around 3,500 metres, passing through heather, moorland, and the magnificent Shira Plateau along the way. This day also marks your shift from the jungle and offers stunning perspectives. On day 3, you will continue your trek to Shira 2 Camp, which is located at an elevation of roughly 3,900 metres and will put you in the midst of an alpine desert environment. The climb up to Barranco Camp at an altitude of 3,960 metres on Day 4 brings you past a number of breathtaking panoramas, including the famous Barranco Wall. The ascent on Day 5, which takes you to Karanga Camp at an altitude of 3,963 metres, is both exhilarating and breathtaking. The next day, Day 6, takes you from Karanga Camp, where you slept and prepared the previous day, to Barafu Camp at 4,640 metres, which is the last stop before your effort to reach the summit. The most important events of the climb take place on Day 7, beginning at Barafu Camp and continuing to Uhuru Peak, which is the highest point at 5,895 metres and features a sunrise that cannot be forgotten. Following the descent, you will arrive to Crater Camp in order to reflect. The eighth day of the trek involves going back over previous terrain before descending to Millennium Camp at 3,790 metres. On day nine of the trip, you will make the last shift from the rainforest zone as you make your way down from Millennium Camp to Mweka Gate. This will be the culmination of the expedition. At the Mweka Gate, you will get the certificate of achievement that you have worked so hard to earn and say your goodbyes to the mountain that has provided you with endless opportunities to improve yourself.
