Shira Route is one of the most spectacular and scenic routes that approaches Kilimanjaro from the west. A 4 × 4 vehicle transports us through a rich, lush rain forest until we arrive at the ridge of the Shira Plateau, where our expedition begins.
We will trek across an Alpine Plateau and traverse the Great Southern Ice Field, before summiting Uhuru Peak from Barafu Hut. The Shira Route is ideal for those with backpacking experience and those seeking a more challenging adventure.
The trek begins and ends in Moshi and will take a total of 10 Days to climb to the top of the second highest mountain in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro.
But your Tanzanian Adventure does not have to stop there.
After completing the Shira Route 8 Days you will have the choice of booking an incredible Safari of the National Parks of Tanzania, checking out the culture with some of our short tours or taking a well earned rest on the island of Zanzibar.
Kilimanjaro Bound will take care of you and your party and organise everything you need for the trip of a lifetime.
