Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route: Day 3

Previous entry.

Today we walked across the Shira Plateau with Kilimanjaro standing tall by our side. It even had the decency to wear a stylish hat of clouds.

Just before leaving the plateau, we crossed the emergency road used for evacuations. Probably a much easier way up but almost certainly less fun.

After crossing the plateau, we started climbing up the slopes, encountering foilage similar to a savannah. Continuing our climb, we reached the Moir Hut at 4,200 meters (13,800 feet) where we would camp for the night.

A few of us also decided to climb the nearby ridge, with a bit of scrambling to get a great overlook. Well worth the extra effort.
