8 days mount kilimanjaro lemosho route

8 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route variation is the ideal schedule for this route. On the 8 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route, the trek from Barranco to Barafu is broken up into two days, allowing for a short day just prior to the summit attempt. This is important because summit day begins very early, around midnight, so climbers are sleep deprived going into the toughest day on the mountain. By having a short day beforehand, climbers can be better rested. The 8 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route is highly recommended and used by most prominent Kilimanjaro operators. 8 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route is a camping trip for an average group size of 4 using top quality mountain tents, comfortable mattresses, and qualified guides, porters who carry the bags and equipment, and cooks who provide fresh, tasty food every day. The ratio of guide:climber is 1:2 during 8 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route. Our local guides have been with us for many years and are all trained, qualified, experienced and great fun. The 8 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route option has a particularly good summit success rate, the extra day makes a difference to how you feel and there are three nights sleeping at the same altitude. The 7 day option is about an 85% summit success rate and we don't offer anything less because it is just too dangerous to consider climbing Kilimanjaro in 6 days. Featuring captivating scenic vistas, pristine wildlife, excellent acclimatization opportunities and low traffic of climbers, 8 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route is our personal first favorite for reaching the roof of Africa. Lemosho was introduced by the park to handle increasing numbers of visitors and it is true to say that Lemosho has a slightly easier gradient through the forest and onto the Shira plateau. However, the gate at Londorossi is further away than Machame Gate so on the first morning you have to drive for about three hours to register at the Londorossi Gate and then drive a little further on to the start of the trek. This means normally beginning to trek after lunch, although the first hike to Big Tree Camp is quite short at just a few hours.
