A life changing experience! I took the 8-day Lemosho route with the help of Climb Kili Tours. The hike was amazing and definitely challenging. Climb Kili made the process easy - they kinda did everything for me with the arrangements. We had 3 guides: Seraphine, Paul and August (nickname: Japan). These guides were amazing, each having over 200 summits to their credit. On the first day we thought the pace was really slow but realized over the next few days that this was necessary to acclimate and to actually reach the summit. We couldn't have summited without our guides. They kept us on pace, helped us acclimate and kept close attention on our health. They even carried some of our backpacks on summit day when some of our hikers got too tired! Overall this hike was a great experience. It was definitely challenging but if you have a chance you have got to do it!
