Mount Kilimanjaro Hike on 6 Days Marangu Route is also known as the “Mount Kilimanjaro Hike Tourist Route” and the “Coca-Cola Route.” This is because Marangu is the most popular route on the mountain, and thus is considered “touristy”, and because the route is the only one that offers sleeping huts, which serve beverages like Coca-Cola, on the way.

Mount Kilimanjaro Hike

Mount Kilimanjaro Hike Marangu route the minimum days required for this route is five, although the probability of successfully reaching the highest therein period of time is sort of low. Spending an additional acclimatization day on the mountain is very recommended when climbing Kilimanjaro using the Marangu route.

Mount Kilimanjaro Hike

Ascent and descent are done on the same route and it’s the foremost crowded route for that reason. Marangu is favored during the season, where the hut accommodations are preferred over wet ground, or for those that only have five days.

Mount Kilimanjaro Hike

Mount Kilimanjaro Hike on 6 Days Marangu Route is also known as the “Tourist Route” and the “Coca-Cola Route.” This is because Marangu is the most popular route on the mountain, Marangu route or Coca – Cola route is an easy route and short route compared to other routes on climb Mount Kilimanjaro.

Scenically, Marangu isn’t a desirable route compared to all or any the opposite routes because it confines climbers to at least one area of the mountain, thus limiting the variability. However, Marangu has the simplest trail within the rainforest section of the trek. Of course, there are still great views of the Mawenzi and it’s equally spectacular for everybody at Uruhu.

Marangu is right for those that aren’t confident in their ability to hike over steeper paths. It’s also attractive for those that don’t want to sleep in a tent.

Marangu’s huts offer shelter against the weather so it’s the best choice when climbing during the season. Marangu is for those that want to spend less on their climb, and don’t mind crowds.

We bring Coca-Cola, coffee, and hot tea to the summit.

What to Expect

Mount Kilimanjaro Hike on 6 Days Marangu Route is also known as the “Mount Kilimanjaro Hike Tourist Route” and the “Coca-Cola Route.” This is because Marangu is the most popular route on the mountain, and thus is considered “touristy”, and because the route is the only one that offers sleeping huts, which serve beverages like Coca-Cola, on the way.

  • You Will Hike Very, Very Slow
  • “Pole, pole,” they will say. That means, “slow, slow,” in Swahili. For speed-freak hikers like me, it can be torturous to trek like a tortoise. But honestly, it is for the best.
  • You Will be Pampered
  • Every climb I’ve ever done prior had been self-supported. Just some friends and I with crazy plans, unwavering optimism, and pure determination. No guides and no porters. This time was different. Way different!
  • You can’t climb Kilimanjaro without going with a guided expedition company. That is unless you’ve got Red Bull or the like cutting through the red tape to give you special permission to speed-climb to the top and roll down it in a Zorb ball or something. Generally, you will go with a guide company. It’s a good thing really. The mountain is better controlled and stays much cleaner that way. And these guys have it dialed in!
  • Take The Time To Learn
  • You’ll have a lot of time hiking. Use it to learn about everything! There’s no better way to pass time on the trail than asking questions, trading stories, and getting to know the people and place better. Learn about your expedition mates if you didn’t know them before the trek. Ask questions and get to know your guides. How long has he been guiding for? Was he a porter prior? How many times has he been to the top? What is his family like? What motivates him and what are his future aspirations?
  • Don’t Forget…
  • I won’t go too deep into what to bring or not to bring because I posted the entire packing list before leaving for climbing Kilimanjaro…
