Lemosho & Shira Route

If you are looking for a more remote, quiet routes for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, it’s best to explore either the Lemosho or Shira routes, which come up the West Slope of Mount Kilimanjaro and connect with the Machame Route. You generally take eight days to climb these routes as it’s a much more gradual experience. If you calcuate all the people that climb Kilimanjaro, less than 8 percent use these routes, as it’s longer and a bit more expensive.
