Northern Route Circuit

Northern Route Circuit:This route is the longest of all and the most recent on the Kilimanjaro. It starts from the Londorossi point or gate and almost goes like the Lemosho route in the first few days about two. After overcoming the Shira plains, it goes north instead of south via the Barranco.

This route rotates around the silent slopes on the north and eastern side of the mountain.  There are a few differences on this route but it also reaches the summit through the Gilman’s Point and then descends via Mweka.
