Kilimanjaro Lemosho 7Bp


... is a seven night non-technical private trek along the Lemosho Trail, which starts its ascent from the western side of Mount Kilimanjaro in the northeast region of Tanzania.

This variant of the classic seven night Lemosho trek has the usual two days passing through the forest, the crossing of the Shira Plateau and then traversing under the Southern Icefields to summit via Barafu.

Night 1 : Lemosho Forest
Night 2 : Shira One
Night 3 : Shira Two
Night 4 : Lava Tower
Night 5 : Karanga Valley
Night 6 : Barafu
Night 7 : Millennium

But the trek varies from the more common Lemosho 7Ag by spending the fourth night at Lava Tower rather than the usual Barranco Valley. This facilitates a further two days of traffic avoidance by offsetting the time of the trail by several hours.

Kilimanjaro Lemosho 7Bp is not a trek that we generally recommend, although we are able to offer it for private groups who are keen on this particular format.

The problem is that Lava Tower is very high for a fourth night stop, which can create problems with altitude acclimatisation, which is the reason that this remains a relatively little used variant. For this reason the summit success drops to just 82%, with a large number of people dropping out at the start of day five after an uncomfortable night.

We tend to most often refer to it when guests ask specifically for a competitive quotation, but once we have gone through the various pros and cons, we usually move on to a better alternative. It tends to take a very unusual set of circumstances for this to be the ideal trek.
