The team of climbers will undertake the Lemosho route and ascend Mount Kilimanjaro from the west. The 12-day itinerary includes two nights at the foot of the mountain in Moshi at 3,000 feet, which will allow them time to acclimatize, meet with their guides and receive a detailed climb orientation and gear check. On day 3, the climbers will enter Kilimanjaro National Park and start their 9 days of climbing.
The Lemosho route does not require any technical
skills or mountain climbing experience, and is one of the newer routes on Mount
Kilimanjaro. It is considered the most beautiful route and grants panoramic
vistas on various sides of the mountain; it offers a great balance of low
traffic, scenic views and a high summit success rate.
