Lemosho Southern Circuit with Crater Camp

The Lemosho Southern Circuit route with Crater Camp option is a great choice, and the original “Lemosho route”. It’s especially perfect for those who want Lemosho route but don’t want the steepness / scrambling of the Western Breach option. This route’s gentle, slow ascent allows the body enough time to acclimatize to the high altitude.

We will walk through the Shira plateau, a world heritage site. Here bird enthusiasts will be thrilled to see the Malachite Sunbird and the Alpine Chat. Amazing views can be experienced from the second day of the hike onwards. On clear days, climbers can see as far as the Ngorongoro highlands and catch glimpses of Mt. Meru.

The advantages of Lemosho Southern Circuit route are that the first few camps on Lemosho route are much less crowded than Machame route, and even more beautiful, and give better acclimatization due to slower ascent.

After Lava Tower, however, this route overlaps with Machame route so the camps get more crowded (to avoid this, consider Lemosho Western Breach or Lemosho Northern circuit route instead). But, this part of the trail – especially the Barranco Valley – is very beautiful, with unique Senecio trees and scenery.

Lemosho Southern Circuit 8 day / 7 night or longer route allows you to spend a night at Kilimanjaro's Crater Camp. The Crater is quite beautiful and a unique environment. On your summit morning, a short 1 1/2 to 2 hour hike leads you from Crater Camp up to the summit. When Lemosho Southern Circuit Crater Camp route is done as 9 days / 8 nights (i.e. an extra night added for acclimatization on request), usually we would add a night at Karanga camp mid-way between Barranco and Barafu camps.

Pricing

8 Days / 7 Nights from $3,499 USD, Inclusive of all government taxes and crater camping fees.
