Furthermore, as one of the newer routes, it provides great viewpoints from different sides of the peaks, the crowds aren’t too big and the success rate to the summit is quite high.

Our journey will begin at the Londorossi Gate. From there, we will spend 2 days trekking through the vibrant forest to the Shira Ridge. After that, we make our way through the Shira Plateau until we reach the Lava Tower. After that, we will make our way to the summit from Barafu. We will then descend along the Mweka Route. En

The days will be long during the trip. However, you will get to enjoy comfortable rest at various huts and camp areas.

Due to the physically nature of this climb to the summit of Kilimanjaro, it is important that participants are in good physical condition.

What people are saying about Sirikwa



We had an amazing time during our journey to the summit of Lenana . It was really difficult but with the help and accurate direction of our guide , James, we were able to reach the summit just to eclipse our eyes with the sunrise. I will never forget the images and the feeling of accomplishment from the top . During our ascendant we had a wonderful team of driver , porters , cook and guide : Willis, bernard, terrace, Joseph, jackelin, Simon , Tim and James ; all of them gave to us a warm welcome, always smiling and making sure we were confortable and mostly safe. The only discomfort was at Shipton camp where the conditions are really precarious. It looks like no one care about honouring the beauty of nature that surround the camp. They ( rock mountain hotel ) should respect such a lovely location, be proud and take measurements to have a camp on the level that the site offers. We really felt like sleeping in a pig pen 1 toilet for 20 people with bumped beds with not ladders and no space between one another . Really it is a place that need URGENTLY a remake . With regard on the main agency EXPLORE-SHARE ; we experienced an issue post booking . We did not received clear information, our question where not answered , etc . Fortunately , Nicky came and sorted out everything for us ( grateful forever) she made the changes needed and we finally got the best ( Siriwa travel). In short “UNIQUE EXPERIENCE, where challenge is constantly surrounded by a great scenery in a huge National Park”. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️



You did not give a detailed packing list for this trekking. it would be nice if you already to give the option to stay in the Austrian Hut (we did) . The daily description could be better. The first day we walked 5 km and the last day 9km. The other days we walked 7-8 hours
