Which Route Is Right For You?
When you climb with The Nasio Trust we share the same goal; to maximise your chances of summiting whilst giving you the best experience possible during your climb. Through years of experience we’ve established two routes that fit the bill for the majority of climbers.
The Lemosho Route
The Lemosho route is as beautiful as it is remote, and gives a great chance of summit success.
Lemosho is a breath taking 42 mile round trip which begins at the fertile lush rainforest of the Londorossi Gate, located in the western base of mountain. Then heads across the Shira Plateau, before taking a southern circuit half way around the mountain. The result is that the climber is exposed to stunning views from all angles.
The summit approach will be from the east with the rising sun at your back.
Your climb will begin with a rest & acclimatisation Day at Ndoro Waterfalls, Marangu.
At the base of Mt Kilimanjaro, surrounded by lush landscapes, lie hidden waterfalls. You will have chance to experience this wonder of nature whilst acclimatising.
Upcoming Lemosho Route Dates:
The Machame Route
This trek takes you up steep paths through magnificent forests before passing through the moorland zones and Shira Plateau.
This is a popular Kilimanjaro route nicknamed the Whisky Route.
The diverse scenery keeps things interesting as you make your way up the mountain. Higher up, the summit challenge starts at Barafu Camp.
You will have 7 days on the mountain with an acclimatisation day best spent on the Shira Plateau, preparing for the final days to the summit.
The Mweka Route is used for the descent.
Accommodation for this route is in tents, which the porters will pitch for you. You will need a sleeping bag, warm clothes and walking poles.
This is a steep, tough trek offering a good rate of success.

Firstly I’ll talk about the climb itself, as for […]Read More
Costas: Climbing In Memory Of His Son
I decided to try and climb Kilimanjaro in January 2016 in memory of my son Tom who had passed away in October 2009 at the age of 23 due to a slow moving brain tumour. It would have been Tom’s 30th birthday and I felt I had to do something special in his memory and at the same time raise funds for a charity. After looking at various alternatives on the Internet, I decided to fund raise for Nasio Trust and Astro Brain Tumour Fund.Read More
