This non-technical Lemosho route allows for ample time to acclimatize to the summit on a scenic route with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend the night at the floor of the crater at 18,600 ft. At the crater you come up close and touch and play on the glaciers.

ACCLIMATIZATION/REST DAY

After a long international flight, rest day is essential. We spend day two acclimatizing in Arusha and immerse ourselves in the cultural activities. If day two falls on a market day, we have opportunity to mix with the local crowd. Or you can spend the rest of the day relaxing in the luxury hotel and get pampered.

Shopping Assistance

We understand that proper gear is essential to the success of summiting. With this in mind, we have a comprehensive Gear List that we provide to all our clients. We not only provide you with the Gear checklist but also assist you with shopping (personal shopping assistance if you are within the Los Angeles area) to ensure that you have the right gear. Shopping for gear can be a stressful activity. It is a service we offer with pride to our signed up clients.

Gear Check

Two months out we conduct gear check over FaceTime or at a signed up client volunteer who is willing to host (if the group is in Los Angeles area) where we take the time to have the entire group build camaraderie before the trip and make sure everyone has the right gear. During gear check we encourage all our participants to bring all the gear they will be bringing to Kilimanjaro - it’s a dry practice.

PreCondition Hikes

For those local in Los Angeles, I conduct frequent PreCondition hike activities to the many local popular trails such as Mt.Baldy, Echo Mtn, Inspiration Point at Echo Mtn and any other that members may suggest. These PreCondition hikes allows for the group to bond, get to know each other and form a support group during the conditioning and in Kilimanjaro when we start the climb.
