Safari Highlights

After an early breakfast we embark on our longest walking day yet. From Shira Camp 2 we will spend 5 or 6 hours ascending to Lava Tower where we stop for lunch and a chance to acclimatise to the rising height of 15,190 feet. Following this we will descend for 2 hours to reach Barranco Camp.

This is a great day for photo opportunities, especially if there are sheets of ice covering the great Barranco Wall, and of course, a stunning sunset. It is also a day where you need to pay attention to your body and notify your guide if you notice signs of altitude sickness.

Today's climbing (without breaks) will take approximately 8 hours.
