It involves sleeping overnight in the bowl of the crater. An amazing experience enjoyed by only a few of the most adventurous climbers.

About Lemosho Route

The Lemosho route is one of our preferred route due beautiful scenery and a high summit success rate. The Lemosho route located from the west that begins with a long drive from Moshi to Londorossi Gate.

Sometime the route is dusty due to many vehicles. From there, the first two days are spent trekking through the lush rainforest to Shira Plateau.

The time period depends on the route, normally this will add one more day over the normal Itineraries. Overnight at crater camps is charge in extra that is why its cost is a bit higher.
