Lemosho Route 8 Days Trip

Overview

$1950 Per person

The 8 day Lemosho variation is the ideal schedule for this route. On the 8 day Lemosho route, the trek from Barranco to Barafu is broken up into two days, allowing for a short day just prior to the summit attempt. This is important because summit day begins very early, around midnight, so climbers are sleeping deprived going into the toughest day on the mountain. By having a short day beforehand, you can be better rested. The 8 day Lemosho route is highly recommended and used by most prominent Kilimanjaro operators.
