Tanzania: Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro – days 3 – Shira to Baranco

Day 3 involves climbing from 12500 ft to 15190 ft in elevation toward the Lava Tower and then descending down to 13044 at the Baranco Camp. Although you don’t gain much in elevation in the end, its a day to acclimatize to the elevation. The Lava Tower is a beautiful area of an otherworldly Senecio Forest and milky-thick fog. Surreal!
