Kilimanjaro - Day 2

The group has now finished Day 2:     MTI MKUBWA to SHIRA CAMP 11,500’~3,505m ∙ 4.5 mi~7.3 km ∙ 6-8 hrs
Departing the rain forest, we enter the heath and moorland zone. In the afternoon we follow the Shira ridge the vast high altitude desert plateau where the first views of Mt Kilimanjaro open on the horizon and the landscape is a magnificent contrast from the departed rain forest.

Everyone is happy and healthy and still going great.  Thanks!
