Kilimanjaro Routes | Marangu Route to Climb Kilimanjaro

Marangu route being the oldest is also known as the “Coca-Cola” route, which is a classic climb on Mount Kilimanjaro.

It is the most well established route. Many favor the route because it is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope. This is the only route which offers sleeping huts with a dormitory style accommodation. Minimum number of days required for this route is five, although the probability of successfully reaching the top of the mountain in that period is quite low. When climbing Mount Kilimanjaro using this route an extra acclimatization day on the mountain is highly recommended.

Marangu route is favored only during the rainy season, where the hut accommodations are preferred over wet ground, or for those who only have five days to climb the mountain.
