Kilimanjaro Climb, Shira Route 7 Days 6 Nights
The Shira route approaches Kilimanjaro through forest and moorland from the west, crossing the caldera of Shira volcano and explores the rock formations of the plateau, before traversing beneath the southern ice fields of Kibo. We make our final ascent by the Barafu route. The seven-day itinerary gives maximum possible acclimatisation and also gives us plenty of time to enjoy the magnificent scenery. The views of Kibo in the sharp light of morning and early evening are often stunning and the Lent Hills, close to the western flank of the summit cone, are very rarely visited. Shira is a little-used approach route with time to enjoy this unspoilt wilderness, before the convergence with other routes in the later stages of the trip.
