KSR day by day – Stage 5 & 6Go Back
Stage 5 : From West Kilimanjaro to Masama.
Stage 6: From Masama to Mweka.
Stage 5 is the longest stage. We begin with a long ascent into the forest reserve where active timber harvesting continues, then exit to a hot and dry lowland stretch, and finally return to the verdant southern slopes of Kilimanjaro.
On Stage 6, we encounter our steepest valleys and ridges above a densely settled area of smallholder Arabica coffee farms that use centuries-old irrigation canals dug along the mountainside. Each village has its own primary school, each with its own distinctive uniform color for the students.
