Lemosho Route

Erklimme den Kilimanjaro in Tansania

Die Lemosho-Route gilt als der landschaftlich reizvollste Weg auf dem Kilimandscharo und bietet Panoramablicke auf verschiedene Seiten des Berges. Als eine der neueren Routen ist Lemosho eine hervorragende Wahl für Ihren Aufstieg. Es ist unsere bevorzugte Route aufgrund ihres idealen Gleichgewichts zwischen wenig Menschenmassen, wunderschöner Landschaft und einer hohen Gipfelerfolgsrate. Tanzania Horizon Safaris ist auf Führungen auf der Lemosho-Route spezialisiert. Die meisten unserer Kunden besteigen den Kilimandscharo über diese Route und berichten immer wieder, wie begeistert sie waren. Daher ist die Lemosho Route sehr zu empfehlen.

Die Route nähert sich dem Kilimandscharo von Westen und beginnt mit einer langen Fahrt von Moshi zum Londorossi-Tor. Von dort aus verbringen Sie die ersten zwei Tage damit, durch den Regenwald zum Shira Ridge zu wandern. Die Lemosho-Route durchquert das gesamte Shira-Plateau von West nach Ost in einer angenehmen, relativ flachen Wanderung. Die Menschenmassen sind gering, bis die Route in der Nähe des Lava Towers in die Machame-Route mündet. Dann durchquert die Route unter dem südlichen Eisfeld des Kilimanjaro auf einem Pfad, der als Southern Circuit bekannt ist, bevor sie den Gipfel von Barafu erreicht. Der Abstieg erfolgt über die Mweka-Route.

Tanzania Horizon Safaris bietet die Lemosho Route als achttägige Gruppenbesteigung oder als sieben- bis achttägige private Besteigung an. Die siebentägige Variante kombiniert die Tage fünf und sechs und führt vom Barranco Camp zum Barafu Camp, ohne in Karanga zu bleiben. Eine neuntägige Variante, die eine Übernachtung im Crater Camp beinhaltet, ist auf besonderen Wunsch als private Besteigung erhältlich.

All Kilimanjaro Routes

Lemosho Gate (2385m) to Big Tree Camp (2780m)

You will be picked up at your hotel at around 09:30am and transferred to the Lemosho gate located on the western side of Kilimanjaro. After the registration process you will still start our climb steadily through the forests of the Lemosho glades to

reach Big Tree camp where you will be spending the night.

Distance covered: 7km / 4.3mi Approx. time taken: 4 hours

Big Tree Camp (2780m) to Shira 2 Camp (3900m)

Today you will cover a lot of ground as you trek across a plateau of grassy moorland and heather scattered with volcanic
rock formations. We will trek through Shira 1 Camp from where there are often views of Kibo Peak floating on the clouds as
we head towards our destination which is Shira 2.. We gain a reasonable amount of altitude as we head towards Shira 1
and parts of the route are fairly steep. As you proceed towards Shira 2 you will get the chance to view the Northern Ice
fields from the western side of the mountain with some unusual views of Kibo. Our steady climb across the moorland of the
Shira Plateau will help with acclimatization and we enjoy great panoramic views.

Distance covered: 16.5km / 10.3mi Approx. time taken: 9 – 11 hrs

Shira 2 Camp (3900m) to Barranco Camp (3960m)

Your trek starts with an ascent with far-reaching panoramic views, walking in to the climatic zone of the upland desert and on the lava ridges beneath the glaciers of the Western Breach. You will reach the distinct pinnacle of the Lava Tower (4640

m), our high point for the day and a great place to enjoy your lunch. In the afternoon we make a steep descent to our camp for the night, located in the base of the Great Barranco Valley (3960 m), sheltered by towering cliffs but with extensive views of the plains below.

Distance covered: 10km / 6.2mi Approx. time taken: 7 hrs

Barranco Camp (3960m) to Karanga Camp (3963m)

Our day starts by descending into the start of the Great Barranco, a huge ravine. We then exit steeply, up the Great
Barranco Wall, which divides us from the southeastern slopes of Kibo. It’s a climb over rock, not technical but long and

tiring. Passing underneath the Heim and Kersten glaciers, we head towards the Karanga valley. From here we have a
steep climb up from Karanga valley to our night’s camp at Karanga camp, set at 3963m. For those feeling strong we will go

for a mid-afternoon acclimatization trek up to around 4200m before descending back to camp for the night.

Distance covered: 5.5km / 3.4mi Approx. time taken: 5 hours

Karanga Camp (3963) to Barafu Camp (4640m)

After a good night’s rest and breakfast, we set off on our walk to Barafu camp at 4640m. The climb will take us across
desolate scree slopes with no vegetation around us at all. It’s a tough steep walk made more difficult by the altitude. On night and day ahead. It is important to keep hydrated and warm. We have an early dinner and then try to get some sleep as we will be getting up at between

11pm and 12pm to start the climb to the summit.

Distance covered: 3km / 1.9mi Approx. time taken: 3 hours

arriving at camp we eat and spend the afternoon resting as we prepare for a long

Barafu Camp (4640m) to UHURU PEAK (5895m) & down to Millennium Camp (3790m)

We start off at around midnight, and walk steeply upwards to the summit glaciers. We will be climbing scree for 4 to 5 hours
but gain incredible height over a short distance. The views are spectacular. We should be on the crater rim at Stella Point (5739m) as the first rays of the sun hit us. Spectacular ice cliffs within the crater surround us and the views to jagged Mawenzi peak and beyond are breathtaking. Another hour’s walking takes us to the summit, Uhuru Peak (5895m). We

begin our descent by returning to Stella Point and then descending on scree slope and track back to Barafu Camp for
breakfast, before finally heading down to Millennium Camp for a long well-earned rest.

Distance covered: 13.4km / 8.3mi Approx. time taken: 12 – 15 hours
