6 Days Shira Route Mount Kilimanjaro Trekking

Detail Product Description

Day 1: Drive to Kilimanjaro National Park Shira Gate, Hike to Shira

The drive from Moshi to the trailhead takes about 3 hours. We hike through the rain forest on a winding trail up a ridge. At lower elevations the trail can be muddy and slippery. Gaiters and trekking poles are a good idea here. We continue a short distance until we reach the Shira Camp

Day 2: Hike Shira 2 Camp to Lava Tower to Barranco Camp

Starting the Shira Plateau we keep on to the east up a ridge, fleeting the junction towards the peak of Kibo. As we continue, our way changes to the South East towards the Lava Tower, called the Sharks Tooth (elevation range between 4650m/15,250ft). Shortly after the tower we come to the second junction which goes to the Arrow Glacier. We now continue down to the Barranco Camp. Although you end the day around the same elevation as when you began, this day is very important for acclimatization and will help your body prepare for summit day.

Day 3: Hike Barranco Camp to Karanga Camp

Following breakfast, we go away Barranco and continue on a steep ridge up the Barranco Wall to the Karanga Valley and the crossroads which connects with the Mweka Trail.


Day 4: Hike Karanga Camp to Barafu Camp

We keep on up to the Barafu Camp. You have accomplished the South Circuit, which offers views of the summit from many different angles. Here we make camp, rest, enjoy dinner, and prepare for the summit day.


DAY-5 Hike Barafu Camp to Summit, down to Mweka Camp

Extremely early in the morning midnight to 2 am, we go on our way to the summit between the Rebmann and Ratzel glaciers. You beginning in a northwesterly direction and climb through deep scree towards Stella Point on the crater edge. This is the most mentally and physically challenging portion of the trek. At Stella Point you will stop for a short rest and will be happy with the most magnificent sunrise you are ever likely to observe. Closer hikers may view the sunrise from the summit. Starting Stella Point, you may come across snow all the way on your 1-hour way up to the summit. Until that time at Uhuru Peak you have reached the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the continent of Africa! From the summit we begin our drop by continuing straight down to the Mweka Camp, stopping at Barafu for lunch. You may want gaiters and trekking poles for the loose gravel going down. We arrive at Mweka Camp and enjoy our last evening on the mountain


DAY:6 Hike Mweka Camp to Mweka Gate, drive to Moshi

After breakfast we continue the drop down to the Mweka Park Gate to receive your summit certificates. At lower elevations, it can be wet and muddy. Gaiters and trekking poles will help. From the gate, continue another hour to Mweka Village. A vehicle will meet you at Mweka village to drive you back to your hotel you book.
