Product Description

The Lemosho Route is truly picturesque and unspoilt with the possibility of sighting wild game along the forest section. This route is a superior option for trekker’s seeking a quiet route away from the crowds for the first two days trekking. Thereafter, the route is precisely the same as the Machame Route.

This route takes us from the West across Shira Plateau to the rarely visited Moir Hut, onwards to our private camp at Sheffield supplemented by an ascent of Lava Tower which offers majestic 360 degree views across the valley and looking directly up to Arrow Glacier.

We ascend the Western Breach to the crater via the classic route from the southwest with a challenging rock scramble during daylight. The wide crater floor is a magnificent arctic moonscape and our camp is set in soft sand adjacent the indigo streaked Furtwangler Glacier.
