About this trip

 The Marangu route is also referred to as the "Coca-Cola" route, as it is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope, direct path, and the most comfortable route to reach the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro. It is the oldest and the most well-established route on Kilimanjaro. The route is well-developed and the climb is constant and moderate.

On this day trip, you will hike on the Marangu Route up to Mandara Hut for lunch. You will NOT reach the summit. All short treks are offered on a private basis, and you can start on any day of the year. The short treks are geared for people who like to hike but reaching the summit isn't a "must-do", and allow one to experience the excitement of hiking on the highest peak on the African continent. All trekking inside of the Tanzania National Park requires the services of a certified Kilimanjaro guide, and the Marangu route is one of the routes where short treks are allowed.
