The Shira Route approaches the summit of Kilimanjaro from the west starting at Morum Barrier. It starts relatively high above sea level and is therefore a less frequented route as it offers a poorer acclimatization profile.
It is one of the older Kilimanjaro routes and is very similar to the Lemosho route. The only difference between them is the trail walked on the first couple of days, and the starting point of the shira is higher.
The route can be completed in either seven or eight days with a distance of 56 km/35 miles.
