Continuing to walk east, we cross the Shira Plateau on our way to our next camp. The forrest makes way for a more barren landscape, interspersed with bushes and small trees.

Just as we apporach camp, after 5hrs of hiking, the clouds arrive and it begins to rain - a refreshing end to a humid hike.

As we are now above 3,000m, we are starting to experience the mists and clouds of Kilimanjaro.

Leaving the sounds of the forrest and the cool of the gigantic trees above us, we reach the grasslands on our way towards the next camp.
