8 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Climb Marangu Route

8 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Climb|Marangu Route

Marangu Route -Climb Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the  most popular routes. Marangu Route also known as coca cola Route. You will hike all the way to Uhuru Peak. You will spend the nights in comfortable mountain huts.

 The Marangu route is often billed as one of the easier walking routes, however, the route has the  lowest success rate (42%). This is because too many climbers try to do it in only 5 days and fail because of poor acclimatization. We have added an extra day's acclimatization to enhance more chances of reaching the summit .Book our 8 days Mt Kilimanjaro climb Marangu route trek guided with trained mountain trekking guides.

Approaching Mount Kilimanjaro from the southeast, the Marangu route uses the same ascent and descent route. This means it is less scenic than the other routes. For climbers who do not wish to camp, then Marangu is the only route that offers dormitory style hut accommodation. The huts have a communal dining room, simple washrooms and toilets which lower down will be flushable. However,  as you move higher up the mountain will be "long drop" toilets.

The journey passes through the village of Marangu, which is located on the lower slopes of the mountain.
