Mt Kilimanjaro – Marangu Route

6 days 8 nights

USD $3550.00 per person

About
Marangu is the oldest and most well known route to climb Kilimanjaro.

Many favor this route because it is the cheapest and is also thought to be the easiest route, given its gradual slope and less “ups and downs” compared to other routes.

It is also the only route which offers a non camping option (sleeping in dormitory style in huts).

For all these reasons, it is the most popular route with climbers and, as a result, can get crowded at times on the mountain.

When climbing this route, you start from the south east of the mountain and work up the eastern side. Trekkers use the same trail to both ascend and descend.
The Marangu Route is a easy route up Mt Kilimanjaro and is the most popular, with cabin style accommodation. It is also known as the Coca Cola route.
