• MARANGU ROUTE

    6 Day Kilimanjaro Trekking Tour + 2 nights hotel stay

Home » Tanzania Trekking » Kilimanjaro Climb »  8 Days Marangu Route Experience

Marangu Route also Known as the “Coca-Cola” route, its a classic trek to Mount Kilimanjaro summit. It is the oldest, and well established climbing route. Many prefer the Marangu route because it is considered to be the easiest trek on the mountain due to its gradual ascent. It is also the only route that offers sleeping huts in dormitory sleeping quarters.

The minimum of 5 days is required to trek this route successfully, however more days to acclimatize can be added to increase the rate of success to the summit.

However, despite its immense popularity, the route has the least scenic variety of all the routes because the ascent and descent are done on the same path and it is the most crowded route. Marangu is favored only during the rainy season, where the hut accommodations are preferred over wet ground.
