Marangu Route

Marangu Route starts from the south-east giving you an opportunity to sleep in the Huts, it is the only of its kind in entire Kilimanjaro routes. The locals and tourist call it Coca-cola route as it cheaper and easier to climb than Machame route. Spending an extra day is highly recommended for proper acclimatization. You will ascend to the summit and descend back to the gate on the same path.

There are 60 bunk beds each at Mandara and Kibo Huts, and 120 bunk beds at Horombo Hut. Guests are supplied with mattresses and pillows, but sleeping bags are still required. The huts have communal dining halls and basic washrooms, ranging from flushing toilets and running water at the lower huts to long drop toilets and buckets of water at Kibo Hut....

Many favor MaranguRoute because it is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope and direct path. However the short time frame of the route makes altitude acclimatization fairly difficult. The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the southeast. Marangu is unfortunately less scenic than the other routes because the ascent and descent are along the same path. It is also the most crowded route for that reason.

WHY CHOOSE MARANGU ROUTE?

You can choose because it is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope and direct path. It also offers you the hut accommodation which is the only of its kind in Kilimanjaro routes. You will not need to add more porters as there is no need of carrying tents via MaranguRoute. If you add an extra day to the Marangu route, you have a success rate of 70% to the summit of Kilimanjaro and enjoy the scenic view in Uhuru peak.
