Lemosho Route is the longest of the standard routes and is without doubt the most beautiful.

Lemosho Route also offers easy walking days and plenty of opportunity for altitude adjustment

The route approaches the summit from the west via the Londorossi Gate and one of the most remote quarters of the region. The trailhead is little more difficult to reach, so Lemosho can sometimes be a more expensive options
