À PROPOS DE L'ITINÉRAIRE LEMOSHO

La route Lemosho est considérée comme le sentier le plus pittoresque du Kilimandjaro, offrant des vues panoramiques sur différents côtés du montagne. En tant que l'un des itinéraires les plus récents, Lemosho est un excellent choix pour votre ascension. C'est notre itinéraire préféré en raison de son équilibre idéal entre peu de monde, de beaux paysages et un taux de réussite élevé au sommet. Climb and Safari Tours® est spécialisé dans le guidage sur la route Lemosho. La plupart de nos clients gravissent le Kilimandjaro en empruntant cet itinéraire et déclarent systématiquement qu'ils l'ont adoré. Ainsi, Lemosho est fortement recommandé.

L'itinéraire s'approche du mont Kilimandjaro par l'ouest, en commençant par un long trajet de Moshi à la porte Londorossi. De là, les deux premiers jours sont consacrés à la randonnée à travers la forêt tropicale jusqu'à Shira Ridge. La route Lemosho traverse tout le plateau de Shira d'ouest en est dans une randonnée agréable et relativement plate. Les foules sont faibles jusqu'à ce que la route rejoigne la route Machame près de Lava Tower. Ensuite, la route traverse sous le champ de glace sud du Kilimandjaro sur un chemin connu sous le nom de circuit sud avant de culminer depuis Barafu. La descente se fait par la voie Mweka.

Bon a savoir

Londorossi Gate to Mti Mkubwa

Elevation: 7,742 ft to 9,498 ft

Distance: 6 km/4 miles

Hiking Time: 3-4 hours

Habitat: Rain Forest

>>> We depart Moshi for Londorossi Gate, which takes about 4 hours, where you will complete entry formalities. Then drive to the Lemosho trailhead. Upon arrival at trailhead, we begin hiking through an undisturbed forest that winds to the first campsite.
Big Tree Camp – Shira Camp 1
Mti Mkubwa (Big Tree) to Shira 1 Camp

Elevation: 9,498 ft to 11,500 ft

Distance: 8 km/ 5miles

Hiking Time 5-6 hours

Habitat: Health

>>> We continue on the trail leading out of the rain forest and into a savannah of tall grasses, heather, and volcanic rock draped with lichen beards. As we ascend through the lush rolling hills and cross several streams, we reach the Shira Ridge before dropping gently down to Shira 1 Camp. Here we catch our first glimpse of Kibo across the plateau.
Shira Camp 1 – Shira Camp 2
Shira 1 Camp to Shira Camp 2

Elevation: 11,500 ft to 13,800 ft

Distance: 11 km/ 7 miles

Hiking Time: 5-7 hours

Habitat: Heath

>>> We explore the Shira Plateau for a full day. It is a gentle walk east on moorland meadows towards Shira 2 Camp. Then we divert from the main trail to Moir Hut, a little-used site on the base of Lent Hills. A variety of walks are available on Lent Hills making this an excellent acclimatization opportunity. Shira Plateau is one of the highest plateaus on earth.
Shira Camp 2 – Lava Tower – Barranco Camp
Shira Camp 2 to Lava Tower

Elevation: 13,800 ft to 15,190 ft

Habitat: Alpine Desert

Lava Tower to Barranco Camp

Elevation: 15,190 ft to 13,044 ft

Distance: 3 km/2 miles

Hiking Time: 2-3 hours

Habitat: Alpine Desert

We begin the day climbing up a ridge and then head southeast towards the Lava Tower – a 300 ft tall volcanic rock formation. We descend down to Barranco Camp through the strange but beautiful Senecio Forest to an altitude of 13,000 ft. Although you begin and end the day at the same elevation, the time spent at a higher altitude is very beneficial for acclimatization.
Barranco Camp – Karanga Camp
Barranco Camp to Karanga Camp

Elevation: 13,044 ft to 13,106 ft

Distance: 5 km/3 miles

Hiking Time: 4-5 hours

Habitat: Alpine Desert

We begin the day by descending into a ravine to the base of the Great Barranco Wall. Then we climb the non-technical but steep, nearly 900 ft cliff. From the top of the Barranco Wall, we cross a series of hills and valleys until we descend sharply into Karanga Valley. One more steep climb up leads us to Karanga Camp. This is a shorter day meant for acclimatization.
Karanga Camp – Barafu Camp
Karanga Camp to Barafu Camp

Elevation: 13,106 ft to 15,331 ft

Distance: 4 km/2 miles

Hiking Time: 4-5 hours

Habitat: Alpine Desert

We leave Karanga and hit the junction which connects with the Mweka Trail. We continue up to the rocky section to Barafu Hut. At this point, you have completed the Southern Circuit, which offers views of the summit from many different angles. Here we make camp, rest, and enjoy an early dinner to prepare for the summit day. The two peaks of Mawenzi and Kibo are viewable from this position.
Barafu Camp – Uhuru Peak – Mweka Camp
Barafu Camp to Uhuru Peak

Elevation: 15,331 ft to 19,341 ft

Habitat: Arctic

Uhuru Peak to Mweka Camp

Elevation: 19,341 ft to 10,065 ft

Distance: 12 km/7 miles

Hiking Time: 4-6 hours

Habitat: Rain Forest

Very early in the morning (around midnight), we begin our push to the summit. This is the most mentally and physically challenging portion of the trek. The wind and cold at this elevation and time of day can be extreme. We ascend in the darkness for several hours while taking frequent, but short, breaks. Near Stella Point (18,900 ft), you will be rewarded with the most magnificent sunrise you are ever likely to see coming over Mawenzi Peak. Finally, we arrive at Uhuru Peak- the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the continent of Africa.From the summit, we now make our descent continuing straight down to the Mweka Hut camp site, stopping at Barafu for lunch. The trail is very rocky and can be quite hard on the knees; trekking poles are helpful. Mweka Camp is situated in the upper forest and mist or rain can be expected in the late afternoon. Later in the evening, we enjoy our last dinner on the mountain and a well-earned sleep.
Mweka Camp – Mweka Gate – Moshi/Arusha
Mweka Camp to Mweka Gate

Elevation: 10,065 ft to 5,380 ft

Distance: 10 km/6 miles

Hiking Time: 3-4 hours

Habitat: Rain Forest

On our last day, we continue the descent to Mweka Gate and collect the summit certificates. At lower elevations, it can be wet and muddy. From the gate, we continue another hour to Mweka Village. A vehicle will meet us at Mweka Village to drive us back to the hotel in Moshi.
