Lemosho route is one of the most preferred routes compared to other routes and it starts through a lush forest and continues towards Shira plateau. Most of the tour operators recommend minimum of 7 days attempt to this route but 8 or 9 days attempt would be preferred for higher acclimatization and a successful summit.
When we compare the days taken to reach the summit, we would highly recommend 9 days route via Lemosho as more the number of days taken, higher you get the acclimatization to altitude and higher are the rate of success to reach the summit. If you go for 7 days your success rate would decrease by 20% that is, the 9 days trek would give you a 90% success rate but 7 days trek would you only 70% success rate. Every subtracted day decreases your success rate. Lemosho Route. It is one of the newer Kilimajaro routes offering panoramic views of the mountain and higher summit success rate. It is preferred by most of the operators as the crowd is lower compared to other routes.
As acclimatization is the main thing to be considered to reach the summit, you will need to give yourself more time to acclimatize and have a successful summit. Taking an extra would be safer too!
