Climbing Kilimanjaro

"Great things are done when men and mountains meet”

In 2012 a group of four crazies took on a 9 1/2 day challenge to hike to the summmit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa. The route selected was the Lemosho trail and even included a camp night in the actual crater.

The Lemosho Route is an unspoiled, remote, little used and beautiful way up to the Shira Plateau. It can either be used to gain the Western Breach route or followed by the Kibo South Circuit to ascend by the easier Barafu Route. The forests around the Lemosho Glades are rich in buffalo, elephant and other big game animals.

Lemosho is also a fairly demanding route, due to both the nature of the terrain and the duration of the trail. On the plus side Lemosho offered us the best oportunity to acclimatize to the altitude and with that a succesful summit was met.
