KILIMANJARO - Climb to the Roof of Africa

 

kilimanjaroThere are many ways to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Below is The Lemosho Route which, in Michele’s opinion, is the most beautiful option. Michele has climbed this peak via every route so please contact her for more information.

Our trek begins in the farmlands and plantations of the western side of the mountain. We climb through shrub forest onto the Shira plateau with fine views opening out over the Great Rift Valley and Mt. Meru. Here we explore the pinnacles of Shira Cathedral before pressing on in the shadow of the northern icefields of Kibo crater itself. From Moir Hut we take an acclimatisation walk to Lent Hills for further stunning views over the surrounding plains. Walking beneath the glaciers of the western breach we reach Lava Tower with a further optional hike to the ruined hut at Arrow glacier.

Ever-changing natural beauty through your sunglasses. Island-fresh air in your lungs to complement that bit of sweat on your brow. Here the sheep have it made. This week, they aren’t the only ones.
