Shira Route Overview
Duration: 8 Days
The Shira route is great for those who like to trek far from the beaten track, but as she starts as a dizzyingly high altitude she isn’t recommended for first time climbers. The serene Shira Route allows you to set off on a high note and takes a relatively direct route to the summit. It has a stable climb rate throughout the glorious scenery of the Shira, comprising poetic forests and sweeping desolate moorlands.
One of our specialist vehicles will transport the group to the Shira gate, where you will start your journey towards the Simba Camp. Acclimatization to the new heightened altitude is essential, especially for those who decide to stay in Moshi or Arusha the night before. You can gaze at the fascinating rock formations and the even pass the southern ice fields to feel the chill kinds cool your skin.
Take in the quiet of the Shira route and its vast beauty across the Shira Plateau, before combining with the Machame route to complete the climb. After adjoining with Machame, the route becomes a little more energized and bustling, and you will be exposed to the stunning highlights of the southern circuit.
