8 days Shira route approaches the summit from the west via Barafu camp and Stella Point, before descending via the Mweka Route and Millennium camp. We walk across an alpine plateau and pass through the caldera of Shira volcano and exploring the rock formations of the plateau.

The 8 day trekking gives you maximum time to acclimatization and also gives the perfect view of the glaciers on the crater rim, before joining with other routes and making the final ascent to the top.
