Lemosho Route

Lemosho Route: This is one of the new routes and is on the western side of the Kilimanjaro. It was introduced as an alternative to the shira route which starts at a relatively higher route.

This route is at the Moshi area and is 12km from the starting point.  When you get lucky you may spot large antelope, buffalo and maybe even elephant.
