With two alternatives when it comes to reaching Uhuru Peak (Mount Kilimanjaro Summit), the longer Lemosho Glades Route is another way to ascend up to the Shira Plateau. The Lemosho route give climbers an opportunity to come up close with some of Africa’s most iconic animals, and the first day’s climbing even requires the presence of an armed ranger for safety purpose.
You can choose to take the easier Machame climbing route to Uhuru Peak or brave the Western Breach/Arrow Glacier route. Lemosho provides a great blend of low number of climbers, beautiful views and a high success rate to summit Mount Kilimanjaro. Climbers are recommended to complete this route within six to eight days
