6 DAYS
Category:
  • kilimanjaro-marangu-route

Known as the “Coca-Cola” route, the Marangu route is a classic climb on Mount Kilimanjaro. It is the oldest, most well established route. Many favor the Marangu route because it is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope. It is also the only route which offers sleeping huts in dormitory style accommodations.

The minimum days required for this route is five, although the probability of successfully reaching the top of Mt kilimanjaro in that period is quite low. Spending an extra acclimatization day on the mountain is highly recommended when climbing Mt Kilimanjaro using the Marangu route.

Marangu is favored only during the rainy season, where the hut accommodations are preferred over wet ground, or for those who only have five days to climb kilimanjaro.
