SHIRA (Londorossi) ROUTE

Length: 56km

Days to complete: You can attempt Shira (Londorossi) in seven days

Those hiking the Shira (Londorossi) route will be transported to the Londorossi Gate and then to the Moram Barrier at an altitude of about 3800m. This gain in altitude can be detrimental if you have not allowed for sufficient days to acclimatise.

The route is very similar to Lemosho and access Kili from the west. Shira (Londorossi) crosses the spectacular Shira Plateau and later joins the Machame route. This difficult route allows for good acclimatisation, provided you are OK to start at a high altitude.
