Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, Marangu Route - 5 Days Hiking Tour

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro Marangu Route

The 'Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro Marangu Route - 5 Days Hiking Tour' this is a trekking multi-day tour to the Kiliamanjaro summit through the Marangu Route what's the most popular and easiest route to the peak of Mt Kilimanjaro given its gradual slope and direct path. Its that path that you will surely reach the highest point in Africa.

Allocated in a small group you will have an adventurous journey to the roof of Africa. However the short time frame of the route makes altitude acclimatization fairly difficult. The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the southeast.

Marangu Route 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. At the same time it is the best option to conquer Kilimanjaro for less experienced hikers, but no illusions, even this easiest way up to the Kilimanjaro summit will require a fairly good physical condition.
