The path follows a ridge through dense mountain forest.  This area is lush and beautiful on sunny days.  It can also be very muddy during the rainy season.   Overnight at Machame Camp.

Day 2:  Average hiking time is 5 hours.

The day starts with deep climbing to reach a small semi-circular cliff know as Picnic Rock.  You will have excellent views of the glacial dome of Kibo, and the jagged rim of the Shira Plateau.  Overnight at Shira Camp, which offers some of the most beautiful views on Kilimanjaro.Here, you will be close to the volcanic cone of Kibo and the spectacular rock formations of Shira Plateau.  You will also have an unforgettable view of Mount Meru seemingly floating on the clouds.
