1 Day Experience the Thrill of Mt Kilimanjaro Trekking Shira Plateau


1 Day Experience the Thrill of Mt Kilimanjaro Trekking Shira Plateau Overview:

Set off for a day of hiking at the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro by using the same trail used by trekkers without actually going all the way to the summit

Pick up and drop off in Arusha

At around 0600hrs pick up at your hotel and drive to west Kilimanjaro with picnic lunch through the forest reserve, for those who want to experience the thrill of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro without wishing to summit, book a hike on the spectacular Shira Plateau. This plateau stretches out over 13 kilometres to the west of Kibo, at an elevation of 3 962 metres. Placed on the slopes of Kilimanjaro, the Shira Plateau shows the remains of an ancient caldera, a volcanic crater that expired around half a million years ago. Today, it stands as a World Heritage Site, boasting deep valleys and weather-beaten lava flows. These are wonderfully framed near the Kibo Massif, which resembles twisted, modern sculptures. Choose from a variety of one to four-day hikes in the area, around different tracks. Every track offers the chance to encounter wildlife from the neighbouring Amboseli National Park, across the border in Kenya. Walk along paths treaded by herds of massive elephant, eland antelope, buffalo, and even lions. Afterwards you will be picked up and drive back to Arusha and drop off at your hotel/ residence
