On the forest road you will reach Lemosho Glades (2000m, 11Km. 45minutes) and the campsite. By walking you will reach the Mti Mkubwa campsite (big tree), (2750m, 3 hours).
After breakfast at 07:00 we leave the Mti Mkubwa campsite and head towards the Shira 1 camp. gently descend to Shira 1 camp located by a stream on the Shira Plateau (3500 m, 5 hours).
While your breakfast is being prepared, you can go for a mountain-style bath (skin massage). You will walk to Shira 2 in the moorland meadows by the stream (3850 m, 1.5 hours).
After the moorland ends, a rocky path will take you to the lava tower where the campsites are located (4,600m, 5 hours) and then to the Barranco hut (3,900m, 2 hours) for overnight and dinner.
You will start the morning with climbing the Barranco wall to a height of approx. 4,200 m, which will take approx. 1 hour (the wall is almost vertical). For 3 hours you will hike the path that crosses the southern slopes to reach the Karanga Valley.
