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

Duration

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.

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.

I was looking at various websites hoping to find a worthwhile charity to support for the Kilimanjaro climb. I had wanted to attempt this climb for some 30 years or so after a friend told me about his experience but somehow never quite got round to it! I am now 63, my wife 65 and her sisters 60 and 62, so I figured if we didn’t do it this year we probably never would!

“In November 2009 I travelled to Mumias to visit Hezron and Patrick Were, two brothers whom I had sponsored through Nasio for more than two years. It was wonderful getting to meet the boys and see first-hand what fantastic support they were receiving at the St Irene’s day care centre in Musanda. When talking about […]

This year I set out to conquer Mount Kilimanjaro. I wasn’t the outdoors type so this was a challenge and a half for me. I had no idea how much my time on the mountain would change me. I started working at the Nasio Trust in June 2014 and went to experience the fundraising challenge […]
