About this trip

  

Kilimanjaro trekking Marangu route 6 days itinerary is what we recommend as it allows one day of acclimatization at Horombo on the 3rd day. Named cocacola route & considered to be the easiest rout of all, this has proved wrong as we have encountered a high failure rate on this route. This is due to that perception which leads to poor preparation and untimely attempt. Despite of being fairly easier the final part to the summit is hard. Marangu is the only route offers hut accommodation with beds & mattress. Soft drinks, mineral water, chocolate bar & beer can be purchased at the camps but trash in trash out is closely observed.

Itinerary

Day 1: Mandara Hut
Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut(6days KIlimanjaro hiking marangu route)

  

After an early breakfast at your hotel, you will be picked up from Arusha (1400m) and driven to the Marangu Gate (1980m). At the gate, the porters will organize and pack the belongings for the hike while you and your guide register with the Tanzania National Park (TANAPA). You will then begin your ascent into the rainforest. During this section of the hike, you should expect rain, mud, and fog. Also, be on the look out for wildlife, including Colobus monkeys! After 3-4 hours of ascending, you will reach the Mandara Hut (2700m). Each hut has 6-8 sleeping bunks (sleeps 60 hikers total) with solar generated lighting. Next to the central hut there are flush toilets. The porters, who arrive at the campsite before the clients, will boil water for drinking and washing. The chef will prepare a snack then dinner for the clients. At nighttime, mountain temperatures may drop to freezing so be prepared.
