At 19,341 feet (5,895 m), Mt. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the world’s highest free-standing mountain, giving it the name, the “Roof of Africa.” There are many trekking companies and routes to choose from. We have selected a route that ensures top-quality guiding and supports a locally-owned business. You will journey through the life zones of Mt. Kilimanjaro from the less-used, more scenic trails that offer excellent opportunities for acclimatization and optimizes for your chances to summit.
Lemosho is a beautiful route with gentle ascents approaching the mountain from the west. We pass through the Lemosho Glades and traverse the Shira Plateau, providing stunning views of Mount Meru and Kibo Peak, Kilimanjaro’s main peak. Crossing the plateau and proceeding in a counter-clockwise direction below the southern face of the mountain, the route takes you to Lava Tower for magnificent 360 degree vistas; the Great Barranco Wall, a challenging and exhilarating rock scramble; and approaches Uhuru Peak from Barafu and the ridge that abuts the Southeast Valley. The climb from Barafu offers incredible views of Mawenzi Peak, Kilimanjaro’s remnant volcanic cone.
