Itinerary of the 9-Day Lemosho Route Kilimanjaro Climbing Tour Package

Day 1: Lemosho Gate to Mti Mkubwa Camp

The journey begins at the Lemosho Gate, where climbers embark on a trek through the lush rainforest to Mti Mkubwa Camp. The trail is rich with the sights and sounds of nature, offering glimpses of monkeys and exotic birds. The day ends at the camp, nestled among towering trees and offering a serene setting for the first night.

Day 2: Mti Mkubwa Camp to Shira 1 Camp

The second day introduces climbers to the moorland zone, where the forest gives way to low shrubs and the landscape opens up to reveal sweeping views of the Shira Plateau. The trek to Shira 1 Camp is a gentle climb, allowing climbers to acclimatize to the increasing altitude.

Day 3: Shira 1 Camp to Shira 2 Camp

The journey continues across the Shira Plateau, a flat, desert-like landscape that was once a volcanic crater. The trek to Shira 2 Camp is relatively short, but the altitude continues to increase, testing the climbers' acclimatization.

Day 4: Shira 2 Camp to Barranco Camp

Day four is a crucial day for acclimatization. Climbers ascend to the Lava Tower, a prominent landmark on Kilimanjaro, before descending to Barranco Camp. This "climb high, sleep low" strategy helps climbers adjust to the altitude.

Day 5: Barranco Camp to Karanga Camp

The day begins with the challenge of the Barranco Wall, a steep climb that requires scrambling over rocks. Once at the top, climbers are rewarded with stunning views before descending to Karanga Camp.

Day 6: Karanga Camp to Barafu Camp

The trail continues through the alpine desert to Barafu Camp. This is the final camp before the summit, and climbers will rest and prepare for the challenging ascent in the early hours of the next morning.

Day 7: Barafu Camp to Crater Camp (Kosovo)

The summit push begins in the early hours of the morning. Climbers ascend in the dark, reaching Stella Point on the crater rim as the sun begins to rise. From there, it's a short hike to Crater Camp, where climbers can rest and take in the stunning views of the glacier.

Day 8: Crater Camp to Uhuru Peak to Mweka Camp

The final ascent to Uhuru Peak, the highest point in Africa, begins early in the morning. After celebrating at the summit, climbers descend to Mweka Camp for their final night on the mountain.

Day 9: Mweka Camp to Mweka Gate back to Moshi/Arusha

The final day is a descent through the rainforest to Mweka Gate. From there, climbers are transported back to Moshi or Arusha, where they can rest and celebrate their achievements.
