Also known as the “Coca-Cola” route, the Marangu route is a classic trek on Mount Kilimanjaro. It is the oldest, most well established route.
Many people favor to climb Kilimanjaro on the Marangu route because it is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope.
It is also the only route which offers sleeping huts in dormitory style accommodations.
The 6 Days Marangu Route is one of the easiest and most popular trail in Kilimanjaro.
The moderate slope makes it less difficult to climb.
It’s the only route with huts, simple dining and rooms. We recommend on doing Marangu 6 days/5 nights in Mountain though this route allow 5 days/4 nights in Mountain.
Marangu is used for both ascend and descend.

Best Time to Climb Kilimanjaro
Year round but March to May are ran months so we recommend avoid this time.
After breakfast and briefing, drive to the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate (about 2:1/2 - 3 hours), register and commence the trek. hike through the rainforest to the Mandara Huts. A side trip to Maundi Crater is a good way to see the surroundings including Northern Tanzania and Kenya. In the rainforest, look for towering Eucalyptus trees, bird life, and Colobus monkeys.
You leave the glades of the rain-forest and follow an ascending path on the open moorlands to the Horombo Huts. Views of Mawenzi and the summit of Kibo are amazing. Look for giant lobelias and grounsels. You may begin to feel the affects of the altitude.
