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 and direct path. It is the oldest and the most well established  route on the Kilimanjaro. This is the only route which offers sleeping  huts in dormitory style. Guests are supplied with mattresses and  pillows, but sleeping bags are still required. The huts have communal  dining halls, basic washrooms and toilet.
Short time frame of the route makes altitude acclimatization fairly  difficult. The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the southeast.  Marangu is unfortunately less scenic than the other routes because the  ascent and descent are along the same path.   It is also the most crowded route for that reason. Burigi Chato  Safaris® offers Marangu Route climbing for five and six days climb.   The difference being five days climb does not have an acclimatization  day on day three at Horombo Hut.
