    Virtually follow day by day my steps on the ascent of Kilimanjaro via the scenic Lemosho route.

    Note that this is an automated scheduled post. Pictures and notes of the trip will be added after my return home (beginning of October).

    DAY 6

    Length: 5 km

    Altitude: from 4200 to 4600 we climb up 400 mt. and walk down 200 mt.


    Early in the morning after having our breakfast, we leave the Karanga Valley and pass the junction which connects with the Mweka Trail (basically Mweka is a reserved route for descending from other routes such as Machame, Lemosho, Umbwe and Shira). We continue to the Barafu Hut, which is located at an altitude of 4,600 meters. You have completed the South Circuit, which offers views of the summit from many different angles. Here we make camp, rest, enjoy dinner, and prepare for the summit day.
