The Shira route is a path that approaches Kilimanjaro from the west, and is nearly identical to the Lemosho route. In fact, Shira was the original route and Lemosho is the improved variation. What is unque about Shira is that the first section of the trail is not hiked, but rather driven. The minimum numbers of days required for this route is six days, although seven days is recommended. The descent is down Mweka, in the south-east. Shira route is beautiful because it crosses the spectacular Shira Plateau, and then combines with the Machame route to share its viewpoints around the southern circuit. Shira has low traffic until it combines with Machame.
