Experienced and already acclimatised mountaineers may opt for the more difficult 7 day ascent along the Lemosho route.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_tta_accordion color=”chino” active_section=”1″ title=”The Lemosho Route Itinerary”][vc_tta_section title=”Day 1 : Your First Day In” tab_id=”1518581818709-d9d125aa-ae9f”][vc_column_text]Welcome to Tanzania

The guides and porters prepare and pack the supplies and your equipment in the village. You will receive a lunch pack and you can also buy mineral water in the village. From here a forest track requiring a 4WD vehicle leads to Lemosho Glades (2100m, 11km, 45 minutes). You will have a lunch stop about half way and will reach the Machame camping area in the late afternoon. Walk along forest trails to Mti Mkubwa (big tree) campsite, (2750m, 3 hours).[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Day 3: Mti Mkubwa camp (2750m) – Shira 2 camp (3840m)” tab_id=”1518589512487-364469f7-c112″][vc_column_text]You rise early at Mti Mkubwa camp and, after breakfast, you climb an hour or so to the top of the forest and then the trail gradually steepens and enters the giant heather moorland zone. Several streams are crossed. A gentle walk across the plateau leads to Shira 2-camp on moorland meadows next to a stream (3840m). By now you will be able to see, in an easterly direction, the Western Breach with its stunning glaciers.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Day 4 Shira (3840m)-Lava Tower (4630m) – Barranco camp (3950m)” tab_id=”1518589566100-76ee881c-e563″][vc_column_text]The route now turns east into a semi desert and rocky landscape surrounding Lava Tower, where you reach an altitude of 4630m after about a 5 hours walk. Lunch is served in a designated area before ascending the rocky scree path to Lava Tower (4630m). Definitely the toughest day so far. It is normally around this point, where for the first time, some climbers will start to feel symptoms of breathlessness, irritability and headaches.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Day 5: Barranco camp (3950m) – Barafu camp (4550m)” tab_id=”1518589607119-04cc813c-4974″][vc_column_text]You will rise around 23h30, and after some tea and biscuits you shuffle off into the night. You will head in a northwesterly direction and ascend through heavy scree towards Stella Point on the crater rim. This 6-hour walk to Stella point is for many climbers, mentally and physically the most challenging on the route. At Stella Point (5685m) you will stop for a short rest and will be rewarded with the most magnificent sunrise you are ever likely to see (weather permitting).[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Day 6: SUMMIT ATTEMPT, Barafu camp (4550m)-Uhuru Peak” tab_id=”1518589650342-06c33cbd-248e”][vc_column_text]You will rise around 23h30, and after some tea and biscuits you shuffle off into the night.

At Mweka gate you sign your name and details in a register. This is also where successful climbers receive their summit certificates. Those climbers who reached Stella Point (5685m) are issued with green certificates and those who reached Uhuru Peak (5895m) receive gold certificates. From the Mweka Gate you will continue down into the Mweka village, normally a muddy 3 km (1 hour) hike. In the Mweka village you will be served a delicious hot lunch!![/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Day 8: Karibu Tena Tanzania” tab_id=”1518589733700-1095914f-cafc”][vc_column_text]Transfer to Kilimanjaro Airport for your flight back home or continue with your safari schedule.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator color=”mulled_wine”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_tta_tabs color=”pink” active_section=”1″ title=”Tour Terms and Conditions”][vc_tta_section title=”Tour Price Includes” tab_id=”1518585319720-736d88ef-5757″][vc_column_text]Transfer to and from the base of the mountain
