Tour Details

6 Days Marangu Route – Kilimanjaro Climbing is one of the easy Kilimanjaro climbs and can also be recommended for Luxury Climbing tour on Kilimanjaro. Marangu route is known as “Coca-Cola” route, Marangu approaches Kilimanjaro from the southeast of the Mountain. It is the oldest established route. Many favor the Marangu route because it is considered to be the easiest route on the mountain. The minimum days required for this route is five, although the probability of successfully reaching the top in that time is a bit low. Spending an extra acclimatization day on the mountain is highly recommended, maximizing the chance of reaching to the summit. Marangu is the only route which offers sleeping huts in dormitory style accommodations.
