Marangu Route Trekking: Overview

Why Choose Marangu Route?

Marangu Route is the most popular, least difficult, and the shortest way to Uhuru Peak on your Mount Kilimanjaro Hike. This route is also called the Tourist Route or the Coca Cola Route.70% of all hikers choose this route because most of the route consists of easy hiking. This route is fairly easy but the final part to the summit is still difficult. Although this route is the easiest, it has the highest failure rate due to bad preparation. It is advised to take this route seriously enough, to be well organized and to take all possible safety measures.                      

What are the Marangu Route Packages we offer?

The Marangu Route Cost on the packages we offer is $1750 per person. The Marangu Route is referred to as the coca-cola route.This is the only route that uses the same path to and fro. Marangu route is the most crowded route on your Mount Kilimanjaro Hike. The route is a comfortable walking path and an easy route to hike....

Here the camping is not allowed but you can stay in a hut accommodation which is offered. A hike in the Marangu route is comparatively cheap and can be hiked in 5 days.

It is a route with a serious hike and a low success rate as the hikers are not prepared at the first point. A 5-day hike does not allow proper acclimatization. Even though the duration of the route is 5 days, an extra day for acclimatization can be added. We highly recommend the Marangu Route 6 Days package for this reason.

The main advantage is, the cost is low and accommodation is in the huts and no camping equipment is required. The disadvantages are the lowest success rate, very crowded, camping is not allowed.
