7 Days Shira Route Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro - Moshi

Overview

The Shira Route is one of the less-trodden routes on Mt. Kilimanjaro that starts close Shira Ridge. It begins the western side of the mountain and is practically indistinguishable to the Lemosho Route. In spite of the fact that Shira is considered a beautiful and shifted route, because of the higher rise of the beginning stage, it is conceivable climbers could encounter side effects of elevation disorder as ahead of schedule as the primary day.
