What is the Northern Circuit route on Mount Kilimanjaro like?

The Northern Circuit is the longest route on Kilimanjaro. It starts in the west along the Lemosho Route.

On the Shira plateau, or latest at Lava Tower, the Northern Circuit branches off to avoid the busy southern circuit and circumvents the peak on the rarely visited northern slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro, near Kenya.

It approaches the summit from the east and descends in the south. As such, it offers stunning 360° degree views of the peak and afar away from the crowds.
