Lemosho route 7 days. Climb Kilimanjaro: lemosho route 7 days itinerary.
The Kilimanjaro climb-lemosho route 7 days itinerary is an is the best for acclimatization.The remote is less used and beautiful way up to the Shira Plateau. The route is one of the few where groups may be accompanied on the first day by an armed ranger, as the forests around the Lemosho Glades are inhabited by buffalo, elephant and other wildlife.
The minimum duration for the Lemosho route is 6 days, however we strongly recommend hiking the route in 7 days. The additional 7th day will give your body more time to acclimatize, reducing the effects of altitude sickness and give you more time to rest before attempting the summit.
