MtKilimanjaro (5895 meter) - Lemosho Route 7days and 5days Safari

Lemosho Route 7 Days trek, the Lemosho is a premium route for Kilimanjaro climb and trek provided from 6 to 8 days. Climbing through different climate zones it starts on heaths and winds further across alpine meadows to ascend to the arctic zone near Uhuru Peak. The descent, in turn, passes through rainforest.
All this makes this route the most scenic on Kilimanjaro. Lemosho offers the smoothest acclimatization and the highest success rates of 85%, 90% and 95% for 6, 7 and 8-day tours, respectively. The total distance covered on Lemosho Route is 46 km (28.5 miles). Lemosho Route 7 Days.

Duration of climb: 7 days

Day 01: Arrival in Tanzania – drive to Moshi Accommodation: Key’s Hotel.
Meal Plan: none.

Day 02: Londorossi Gate / Mti Mkubwa Camp

Elevation (m): 2360m / 2650m, Distance covered: 6 km, Trekking time: 3 - 4 hours, Habitat: Montane forest.

Drive from the hotel/lodge to Londorossi Park Gate for orientation and registration. Meanwhile, our team of porters will prepare and pack the supplies and luggage before we drive to the starting point at Lemosho River glade for beginning our ascent along the forest trail to Mti Mkubwa (big tree) camp at 2650m. We will stay here overnight.
Meal Plan: Full Board.

Day 03: Mti Mkubwa Camp / Shira 1 Camp

Altitudes (ASL): 2650m / 3500m, Distance covered: 8 km, Trekking time: 6 - 7 hours, Habitat: Moorland.

Leaving the forest behind, today’s trek with a height gain of over 600m through the moorland zone of giant heather will take us to a lunch stop at Shira beautiful valley just outside the Shira Crater at around 3050m. After lunch, the trail climbs steadily with wide views to reach the rim of the Shira Plateau and cross into the Shira Caldera a high altitude desert plateau rarely visited by man. Shira is the third of Kilimanjaro’s volcanic cones. It is filled with lava flow from Kibo, and its rim eroded and blasted away by weather and volcanic action. In an easterly direction, we will see the Western Breach with its stunning glaciers as on this day expect the first close views of Kibo, the dramatic summit cone of Kilimanjaro. There is a tangible sense of wilderness, especially if afternoon mists come in! We camp in the centre of the plateau for overnight. The night here is colder than the previous night and the temperature could possibly go below freezing.
Meal Plan: Full Board.

Day 04: Shira 1 to Moir Hut

Elevation (m): 3500m to 4200m, Distance: 14 km, Time: 5-7 hours, Habitat: Moorland.

We leave the forest behind now, the trail gets steeper as it enters the moorland zone. A gentle grade walk takes you across the high altitude Shira Caldera to Shira Cave with fabulous views of Arrow glacier. We will camp here for the night at 4200m.
Meal Plan: Full Board.

Day 05: Moir Hut via Lava Tower to Barranco Camp

Elevation (m): 4200m to 4600m to 3950m, Distance: 12 km, Time: 6-7 hours, Habitat: Semi desert.

Our route continues on a rocky and rugged eastward path as we ascend to the base of the Lava Tower at 4600m for lunch and acclimatisation. This will be our toughest day so far and you may, for the first time, feel the altitude. After lunch we will descend again by almost 650m to the Barranco camp. The high altitude of 4600m at Lava Tower and then descending to sleep will aid acclimatisation. Our descent to Barranco camp from Lava Tower takes about 2 hours and offers great opportunities to take some beautiful photographs of the Western Breach and Breach Wall. The camp is situated in a valley below the Breach and the Great Barranco Wall, which should provide you with a memorable sunset while you wait for your dinner.

Meal Plan: Full Board.

Day 06: Barranco Camp / Barafu Hut Camp

Altitudes (ASL): 3950m / 4600m, Distance covered: 9 km, Trekking time: 6-7 hours, Habitat: Alpine Desert.

After breakfast, a short and fun scramble to the top of the Great Barranco Wall! We then traverse over scree ridges to the Karanga Valley (3930m) beneath the icefalls of the Heim, Kersten and Decken Glaciers. After climbing out of the Karanga Valley our trail ascends to Barafu Camp (4600m) where we will spend the night.
Meal Plan: Full Board.

Day 07: Barafu Hut Camp / Summit / Mweka Hut Camp
Altitudes (ASL): 4600m / 5895m (and down to 3797m), Distance covered: 7km ascent / 18km descent, Trekking time: 6 - 8 hours ascent / 6 - 7 hours descent, Habitat: Stone scree / ice-capped summit /Alpine desert, Altitudes Gained (Barafu Hut – Summit): 1295m, Change in Altitude; Summit – Mweka Hut: (-2098m)

Waking up at 11:30 pm with some quick tea and biscuits, we will start our ascent by torchlight at about 00:01 a.m with a slow but steady pace through heavy scree towards Stella Point (5732m) on the crater rim. This is the most mentally and physically challenging part of the trek. We will stop here for a short rest and will be rewarded with the most magnificent sunrise you are ever likely to see (if weather permitting). Those who are still feeling strong, can make the 1 ½ - 2 hour round trip from here along the crater rim passing close to the spectacular Rebmann glacier and ice cliffs that still occupy most of the summit area to Uhuru Peak (5,895 m), the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and African continent. From here, after the summit exploration and the photo celebration, the descent to Barafu is surprisingly fast, and after some refreshment, we continue to descend to reach Millennium Hut Camp (3797m), our final camp. Later in the evening, we will enjoy our last dinner on the mountain and a well-earned sleep.
