This climb is great for those wanting more privacy, a slower climb with beautiful scenery. The traverse across the Shira plateau can be especially spectacular. We highly recommend the Lemosho Glades due to over crowding on the other routes. This is the most dramatic routes up Kilimanjaro and are rarely used. We traverse some of Kilimanjaro most striking and least traveled landscapes, including the base of Kibo Peak's dramatic south-facing glaciers. On all our routes we camp in MEM's rugged mountain tents every night, and dine on great meals prepared by our guides
The overall height difference between Lemosho Gate, National Park entrance and the summit of Uhuru peak is 4200 meters (13,776 ft) and the distance is in total a good 68 km (42.50 miles) trek with the bonus of an ascent of one of the worlds finest 5000 meter peaks.
