Summit mount Kilimanjaro Marangu route also referred to as the “Coca-Cola” route, is that the oldest, most well-established route on Kilimanjaro. this is often the sole route that gives sleeping huts in dormitory-style accommodations in lieu of camping.

There are 60 bunk beds each at Mandara and Kibo Huts, and 120 bunk beds at Horombo Hut. Guests are furnished with mattresses and pillows, but sleeping bags are still required.

The huts have communal dining halls and basic washrooms, starting from flushing toilets and running water at the lower huts to long drop toilets and buckets of water at Kibo Hut.

Many favor Marangu because it’s considered to be the simplest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope and direct path. However, the short time-frame of the route makes altitude acclimatization fairly difficult.

Kilimanjaro Climb Cost the route approaches Kilimanjaro from the southeast. Marangu is, unfortunately, less scenic than the opposite routes because the ascent and descent are along an equivalent path. it’s also the foremost crowded route for that reason

Marangu is the easiest route on Kilimanjaro. Its ascension profile is extremely gradual and steady, allowing painless trekking for many of the way.

HOW DIFFICULT IS THE MARANGU ROUTE?

  • Although many of us are led to believe this is often one among the simplest routes, it’s actually considered difficult due to the speed by which you ascend. this is often very true on the 5-day itinerary where many of us suffer from lack of acclimatization. The 6-day option is simpler, however, an honest level of fitness remains required.
