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 climbing 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 that offers sleeping huts in dormitory-style accommodations.
The 6 Days Marangu Route is one of the easiest and most popular trails in Kilimanjaro.
The moderate slope makes it less difficult to climb.
It’s the only route with huts, simple dining, and rooms. We recommend doing Marangu 6 days/5 nights in Mountain though this route allows 5 days/4 nights in Mountain.
Marangu is used for both ascend and descend.
