Beginning in the south with a spectacularly rewarding climb up to the Shira Plateau. The infamous Barranco Wall, a steep cliff with rocky outcrops makes for a tough but interesting scramble. Seeing the sunrise over Mawenzi peak on summit day from Stella Point is simply breathtaking!

altitude advice

High altitude is likely to affect everyone slightly, but this isn’t something to worry about! Our leaders will set a steady pace and our doctor will be carrying out daily health checks. As long as you keep yourself well fed, hydrated and rested on the mountain, you should make it to the summit safely!
