The kilimanjaro lemosho route is an unspoilt, remote, less-used and beautiful way up to the shira plateau. Trekkers sometimes use it to ascend the western breach route, or follow it with the kibo south circuit to ascend by the easier barafu route. The first day of the route is rich in game animals, and armed rangers may accompany a group temporarily.
