Lemosho vs Machame


We're planning a hike up Kilimanjaro this September. We are considering both the Lemosho and Machame routes. Does anyone have any recommendations or advice? (We'd also like to hear what company you went with and whether you would recommend them.)

Are guide was the guide that led the IMAX crew up (that did Kili 4-5 years ago). He has been up 350+ times (he is 57, guy is amazing).

I asked him what his favorite routes were.

His order was

1) Western Breach

and then his two favorite routes after this were

Machame and Rongai.

Lemosho joins Machame. Believe it joins Machame at the end of Day 2 on Machame. Where it joins is just above tree line.


We enjoyed them as a company. They are a budget company. They are completely owned and operated by Tanzanians.

Enjoy your climb!

Hi #2

i just say this, for my self i did both routes, which is machame route and lemosho route but according to my expirience i think lemosho is brialliant than the other cause it's so quiet while machame it's crowd with so many tourist.

i went with (martoursandsafaris) local tour company based in moshi with expirience guide and knowledgable, their prices it's affordable plus wonderful services, such as nice food, good gears for trekking..ect ect.

so check them for more helpful and info. through (www.martoursandsafaris.com).
