A 6 days trek is strongly recommended on this route by our team experts as it allows one day of acclimatization at Horombo on the third day.
The Marangu route, also known as the “Coca-Cola” route, is the oldest, most well established route on Kilimanjaro. This is the only route which offers sleeping huts in dormitory style accommodations in lieu of camping. Despite the route being considered to be the easiest route up Kilimanjaro, a good preparation is required for a successive climb. Unlikely other routes, Marangu being the only route where soft drinks, mineral water, chocolate bar & beer can be purchased at the camps but trash-in trash-out is closely observed.
Amazing Gallery Expeditions offers Marangu route as five or six day private climb. The five day variation does not have an acclimatization day on day three at Horombo Hut.
