7 Days Lemosho Route Climb Kilimanjaro Overview

The 7 days Lemosho route variation is preferred over the 6 days option because it breaks up day two into two days, providing better acclimatization and a more gradual ascent. On the 7 days route, we walk from Forest Camp to Shira Camp 1 on day two, a reasonable altitude gain of 2,000 feet. Then on day three, we continue from Shira Camp 2 to the little-used Moir Hut, at 13,800 feet. Overall the exposure to this altitude will help prepare the body for higher altitudes coming on the following days.

However, the trek from Barranco to Barafu, followed by the summit day is unchanged from the six-day Lemosho variation. This schedule is still very tough, though the extra day on the mountain on the 7days route will help climbers deal with the exhausting itinerary better than those who opted for the 6 days route.

Itinerary

Kilimanjaro Airport – Moshi

You will be picked up at Kilimanjaro Airport in Tanzania by our transfer driver and taken to the Keys Hotel in Moshi town. The rest of the day will be free. Relax at the pool or explore the small town of Arusha. There will be a pre-departure briefing on what can be expected over the next few days and a gear check at the hotel before the tour start. You’ll dine at the lodge and get a necessary good night’s sleep.

Dinner


Day 1 Moshi – Lemosho Gate (2385 m) – Big Tree Camp (2780 m)

Up and away. You will drive to Lemosho Gate where you will be registered by the national park authorities. A moderately steep path leads to the Big Tree Camp (2780 m). Look out for monkeys and interesting birds along the way. The tents will be already set up and hot tea and washing water will be waiting.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 2 Big Tree Camp (2780 m) – Shira Camp 2 (3900 m)

Today’s long trek starts on a small trail that continues through the trees and gradually ascends to reach the Shira plateau. Enjoy the views of the mountain and plains below. The path continues to cross the Shira Ridge (ca. 3600 m) and you will stop for lunch at the Shira Camp 1 after another few hours. In the last section (approximately 3 hrs), you will climb another 250 meters in altitude and pass the surreal Senecia-plants growing to over 8m in height. Reaching the camp after the long day, you will relax with coffee and tea and be nourished with a 3-course meal tonight. As the sun sets you might see the summit glowing in the afternoon sun.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 3 Shira Camp 2 (3900 m) – Lava Tower (4640 m) – Barranco Camp (3960 m)

You will gain 700m in altitude but descend to sleep at Barranco – 60 m higher than last night’s camp. This will help with acclimatization as you will go up to 4600 m before descending again. Today begins with a long uphill in the direction of the Lava Tower Hut (4640m) and you will notice how the landscape changes to a rocky alpine desert. Later, the path descends again to the Barranco Valley with its giant Senecas and Lobelias. After six to seven hours you should arrive at the most beautiful camp on the mountain – the Barranco Camp.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 4 Barranco Camp (3960 m) – Karanga Camp (4035 m)

Today will start with the daunting Barranco Wall. Soon you will realize it looks worse than it actually is, but there are tricky sections where you will need to hold on tight. Admire the views from the top.

The rest of the route follows along the mountain ridge into the Karanga valley and out.
You reach Karanga Camp after lunch and you will have fantastic views of the southern glacier of Kibo as well as of the Kibo summit.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 5 Karanga Camp (4035 m) – Barafu Camp (4640 m)

A few hours of hiking through a desolate and rocky moon-like landscape lies ahead. It will be a relatively easy day leading steadily uphill. The goal for today is the Barafu campsite on a narrow ridge in full view of Mawenzi peak. You will walk along a trail that passes through the afro-alpine dessert until you reach your destination for today –Barafu Camp at 4640 m. Use the rest of the day to relax and pack your daypack for tonight’s summit attempt. Supper will be served early; drink and eat enough if you can and try to sleep. You will be woken up around midnight to start your walk to the summit.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 6 Barafu Camp (4640 m) – Uhuru Peak (5895 m) – Mweka Camp (3080 m)

It is dark and cold as you set off just after midnight. You will climb the frozen volcanic dust by headlamp going towards Stella Point on the crater rim – about six hours. The sun should be rising when you arrive here. Just an hour or two more and you will be standing on the highest point of the crater: Uhuru peak. On top of the world! Take a short break for pictures and celebratory hugs before you tackle the steep and dusty descent. By now the volcanic ash will have thawed… You will stop for a short tea break at Barafu and then continue downhill for about three hours to Mweka camp (3080 m). This is your overnight stop. Refuel by drinking lots of fluids and have a good helping at supper time.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 7 Mweka Camp (3080 m) – Mweka Gate (1630 m)

A traditional farewell ceremony from the porters begins the day. After about three hours of comfortably descending through the greenness of the forest, you should reach the Mweka Gate where the driver will be waiting. Back at the lodge, a hot shower, cold drinks, a debrief and your certificate of achievement are waiting. Well done!

Breakfast, Dinner
