5 Days Kilimanjaro Climbing Via Marangu

Marangu route:

This is one of the most preferred and scenic route up  Kilimanjaro, and known as the "Coca-Cola route". Marangu route is the most popular route to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.  It is the cheapest  route, and it can be climbed within less days, thereby getting to the summit one day earlier than on the Machame route. This provides a shorter acclimatisation period.

A climber can as well spend an extra day on the mountain for acclimatization on Marangu route. This extends the route to a 6-day march, greatly increasing your chances of mount Kilimanjaro climbing success. Hut accommodation on the Marangu route forms one of the main differences, compared to the other Mount Kilimanjaro routes.

It offers you the relative luxury of being able to sleep in huts along the entire Marangu route. Mineral water, soft drinks, chocolates and beers are also sold at all the camps on this Mount Kilimanjaro route. All your Mountain climbing equipment and supplies are portered and a cook prepares all your meals.
