Kilimanjaro Hike – Marangu Route
Kilimanjaro Hike Marangu route, also known as the Coca-Cola route, is the oldest and most established route. The only route offering sleeping hut accommodations instead of camping are this route.
Mandara and Kibo Huts each have 60 bunk beds, while Horombo Hut has 120 bunk beds. Mattresses and pillows are provided, but guests must still bring a sleeping bag. Among the huts are communal dining halls and basic washrooms, ranging from flushing toilets and running water at the lower huts to buckets of water at Kibo Hut.
Given its gradual slope and direct route, many people prefer Marangu’s path because it is considered to be the easiest on the mountain. However, the short duration of the route makes acclimatization at high altitudes a challenge.
Toward Mount Kilimanjaro, the route takes a southeasterly route. Since the ascent and descent are along the same path, Marangu is unfortunately not as scenic as other routes. For this reason, it is also the most crowded route.
