Day 2 – Things start getting serious as we gain height and we cross a giant heather moorland zone

Virtually follow day by day my steps on the ascent of Kilimanjaro via the scenic Lemosho route.

Note that this is an automated scheduled post. Pictures and notes of the trip will be added after my return home (beginning of October).


Length: 8 km

Altitude: from 2750 to 3500, we gain about 750 mt.


Early morning after breakfast, we continue as the trail gradually steepens and enters the giant heather moorland zone. Several streams are crossed then it gains the Shira ridge at about 3600m and drops gently down to Shira 1 camp located by a stream on the Shira Plateau. Dinner and overnight at Shira 1 campsite.
