The Lemosho Crater Route is our most popular route due to its beauty, the long acclimatization time, and the excitement of spending an overnight at 18,800 feet inside the crater on Kilimanjaro. The nine day route takes us from the west across the Shira Plateau, with an ascent to the base of
the majestic Lava Tower. From Lava Tower we climb the Barranco Wall and approach the summit via the Barafu Camp ridge. After the overnight camped in the soft sand of the crater, we have a sunrise climb to Uhuru Peak before descending toward the southeast and incredible views of Mawenzi, Kilimanjaro’s remnant volcanic cone.
