The Lemosho is an unspoilt, spectacular and remote way up to the Shira Plateau, the principal features of the trail which adds an interesting texture quite as it allows for a more moderate process of acclimatization. The route is one of the few where groups may be accompanied on the first day by an armed ranger, as the forests around the Lemosho Glades are rich in buffalo, elephant and other big game animals.
The climb itself can take either 7 or 8 days, with 8 days being recommended in order that climbers have more opportunity to acclimate before the brutal summit day. This route is not nearly as popular as Machame or Marangu, but it’s a good one to consider because the longer climbing time equals a greater chance of conquering the Uhuru Peak with fewer problems.
