7 Days Shira Route

Tour Overview

Shira is one of the lesser utilised routes, which progresses up the mountain from the west side. Just like the Lemosho trail, it is known as the original Londrossi route and the registration process is completed at the Londrossi Gate (2250m). Thereafter you are driven to an elevation of 3720m where you begin your trek at the plateau in the moorland zone of the mountain, which results in missing out on a hike through the forest zone of Mount Kilimanjaro. The high elevated start is advised only for those individuals that are comfortable with such altitudes. More than the Lemosho route, one’s experience on the initial days will be a solitary one with literally no other individuals to been seen around besides your group and support team.


  • The Shira Route is a little-used trail that begins near Shira Ridge.
  • It is nearly identical to the Lemosho route. In fact, Shira was the original route and Lemosho is the improved variation.
  • Although Shira is a varied and beautiful route, it is less favorable than its successor due to the relatively high altitude of Shira's starting point, which is accessed quickly by vehicle.
  • It is possible that climbers will experience some altitude related symptoms on the first days.
