Shira route is very scenic with beautiful views, but also more expensive and difficult. The route starts at the west side of the Kilimanjaro and crosses the stunning Shira Plateau before joining with the Machame Route. Due to the high starting point of the route (3,500 m), climbers miss out on the forest zone and the body has less time to acclimatize. This is not a touristic route and suits climbers with trekking experience the best.
During your climb a professional team of guides, porters and cooks assist you. Tanzania Specialist selected the best guides, that have a high safety record and client success rate. To secure your safety, they check your pulse rate and oxygen saturation each day.
