6 Days Trekking Marangu Route (Mount Kilimanjaro Summit)

Famously known as the “Coca Cola route” – the Marangu route is one of the most popular routes leading to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro. It is considered the easiest route as the ascent on this route is constant and moderate with only the final leg to the summit slightly more challenging. Marangu is the only route that offers communal sleeping huts, equipped with beds and mattresses at every overnight site. The Marangu route uses the same ascent and descent route.
