Youtube video of climbing mount Kilimanjaro 5 Days Marangu Route, Youtube video of 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, and thus is considered “touristy”, and because the route is the only one that offers sleeping huts, which easy like Coca-Cola.

Youtube

Youtube video of 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.

Youtube video of the huts has 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.

From a Youtube video are many favors 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.

Youtube video of Kilimanjaro 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

O the Youtube video you will find Marangu is the easiest route to 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 of 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 a lack of acclimatization. The 6-day option is simpler, however, an honest level of fitness remains required.

What to Expect

Climbers Mount Kilimanjaro 5 Days Marangu Route, Climbers Marangu Route is also known as the “Tourist Route” and the “Coca-Cola Route.

  • 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…

Day 3 Starting Day

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro 5 Days Marangu Route after breakfast and briefing, drive to the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate (about 1 hour), register, and commence the climb. Walkthrough the rainforest to the Mandara encampment. A side trip to Maundi Crater is a good way to see the surroundings, including Northern Tanzania and Kenya.

Day 4Hike Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut

You leave the glades of the rainforest and follow an ascending path on the open moorlands to the Horombo encampment. Views of Mawenzi and the summit of Kibo are amazing. Look for giant lobelias and groundsels. You may begin to feel the effects of the altitude.

Distance: 12km/7.5mi

Day 5Hike Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut

From here we descend, stopping for lunch and a rest at Kibo before continuing on to the Horombo encampment.

The beginning of this climb is done in the dark and requires headlamps or flashlights. It will be very cold until you start descending, so you will need all of your warm layers. This is by far the most difficult part of the trek with many switchbacks. Going slowly “pole pole” and an optimistic attitude will get you there!
