Marangu Route is the most preferred route by many trekkers. Mostly the new climbers choose this route due to being the most comfortable route.

Marangu is the oldest route for Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

Popularly known as Coca-cola route Marangu is the only route to provide hut facility. Apart from Marangu, all other routes are camping routes.

The route provides 3 prime huts at Mandera, Kibo, and Horombo. While Mandera and Kibo provide 60 bunk beds Horombo provides 120 bunk beds. All the huts come with dining halls and basic washrooms as well as with mattresses and pillows. However, due to the chilling night sleeping bags are still essential.

Marangu is the most direct path to the Uhuru peak. It takes only 5 days to complete the climbing however 1 more day is added by the trekkers to acclimatize well. So Jerry Tanzania Tours offer  6 Days Marangu Route  package for easy acclimatization & better summit chances.
