Lemosho Route offers a great combination of scenic views, low climber density, and a high success rate. It is recommended to allow six to eight days for completion of Lemosho Route.
With two options when it comes to reaching Uhuru Peak, the longer Lemosho Glades Route is an alternative way to ascend up to the Shira Plateau. The Lemosho route offers climbers an opportunity to see some of Africa’s most iconic animals up close, and the first day’s climbing even requires the presence of an armed ranger.
You can choose to take the easier Machame route to the summit or brave the Western Breach/Arrow Glacier route.
