Is the Shira Camp for Me?

Shira Camp Kilimanjaro is the second camp on the Machame Route.

There are two camps on the Shira Plateau – Shira Camp 1 on the western side and Shira Camp 2 on the Eastern side.

People using the Shira and Lemosho Routes usually stay at Shira Camp 1; however, seven or eight-day trekkers on these routes sometimes stay at Shira Camp 2 as well.

Shira Camp 2 (3,847m) sits on the Eastern edge of the Shira Plateau.

It is the first camp at which altitude sickness might be felt. It also provides stunning views across the Kilimanjaro Valley below.
