6 days marangu route Kilimanjaro hiking package

The route is also known as the coca cola route because it is widely considered to be the easiest route; this is not very accurate as its short time frame does not favor acclimatization. The highlight about the path is mainly its sleeping arrangement, where instead of tents climbers sleep in huts and the trail has gradual slope and direct path to the peak. The route is almost as scenic as other routes but since the ascent and descent is done on the same path, the other routes are more superior to it.

The route can be done in just five days but it is highly advised to take an extra day at horombo hut for acclimatization. The trail approaches the mountain from south east, and only takes about 45 minutes to reach the gate from Moshi town.

If you are looking for more company while hiking to Mount Kilimanjaro then marangu should be on the top of your list as meals are served in open canteens, you will be sharing the canteen space with other trekkers so this can be an enjoyable experience. However if you are want privacy you may want to consider other routes.

During rainy season marangu can be a run to route because of the accommodation style offered, the huts are drier and more comfortable compared to tents. Tanzania Safari Radar offers both 5 and 6 days hike to the mountain using the marangu route.
