6 Days Kilimanjaro climbing Marangu route from Nairobi

Marangu route:

Known by most mount Kilimanjaro climbers as the "Coca-Cola route", mount Kilimanjaro Marangu route is by far the most popular route to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Probably because Marangu route is the most budget Mount Kilimanjaro route, or because hiking Marangu route is possible 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 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.
