Big Tree Camp (2780m) – Shira Camp 1 (3500m)

After breakfast you will soon leave the dense rainforest, and pass through heathland, the landscape starts to become more barren and is marked by lobelias. It travels up to the mountain ridge that leads to the Shira Plateau. You will be rewarded with a great view of Kibo and Mount Meru. You then cross some quiet streams and descend over the Shira Ridge (3600m) to the night camp at Shira Camp 1.  Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner
