The Lemosho Route precedes an assault on the summit via Barranco Valley, Karanga Valley and Barafu Huts to Stella Point on the Barafu Route. The usual descent route is the Mweka Route. The main reason why this trail has overtaken the old Shira Route is, it is the first day when you are walking through the beautiful forest of Kilimanjaro’s lower slopes. Compare to Shira Route where you take a car all the way up to the plateau, thereby missing out not only on some fine forest, which you experience only through a car window but also on some useful acclimatization.
Duration for the safari is 8 days.
