Kilimanjaro Lemosho 7W


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

Night 1 : Lemosho Forest
Night 2 : Shira Two
Night 3 : Moir Hut
Night 4 : Lava Tower
Night 5 : Lava Tower
Night 6 : Arrow Glacier
Night 7 : Millennium

This trek is completely different from the usual Lemosho treks and is only suitable for serious mountaineers.

Rather than passing under the Southern Icefields to summit from Barafu in the southeast, this route heads directly up the Western Breach, passing through Kibo Crater on the way to the summit, an approach which is used by less than 2% of trekkers because it is potentially very dangerous. The very steep ascent is renowned for rockfalls. The use of technical equipment such as ropes and helmets also means that specialist mountaineering insurance will most likely be required. Whilst attempting the summit, the support crew needs to pass around the mountain to meet you on the other side, so you have no support below, making evacuation much more difficult.

The trek is also around 3-4 times the price of a non-technical route.

Because of the specialist nature of this trek, we do no publish prices, it is too serious an undertaking to offer for general sale. Please contact us directly if you are seriously interested.
