The Mt. Kilimanjaro Marangu Route is a popular route on which nights are spent in huts and meals are taken in dining halls. It is the only route that ascends and descends using the same path and is often referred to as the “Coca-Cola” route. Hut accommodations are some of the main features of this route, offering the relative luxury of being able to sleep in covered lodging along the entire route. Mineral water, soft drinks, chocolate and beer are also sold at all the camps along this route.
The trek starts from the gate of Mt. Kilimanjaro National Park, about 50-minute drive from your hotel. The Marangu route passes through rainforests (which teems with birds and colobus and other monkeys), alpine meadows and lush vegetation (with giant lobelias and senecios) until you reach the snowy summit. At some spots along the route, you will have magnificent views of snow-laden peaks of Kilimanjaro, Kibo and Mawenzi.
Mt. Kilimanjaro climbing is composed of a number of crew which includes the chief guide, assistant guide, cook and porters. This professional group has undergone extensive training to ensure the safety and comfort of climbers during the challenging trek.
