This is a great Kilimanjaro hiking option if you want a longer trek for acclimatization. It connects with the Machame Route at Shira 2 Camp. As professional and experienced local Kilimanjaro Guide this in my preferred route due to its ideal balance of low crowds, beautiful scenery and a high summit success rate, due to the nature of the route itself has beautiful landscape which it allow you to do acclimatization everyday through this your body is going to update with the environment around in order to overcome high altitude sickness or Mountain sickness.
