6 - Day Mt Kilimanjaro Climbing - Marangu Route

The Marangu route, also known as the "Coca-Cola" route, is the oldest, most well-established route on Kilimanjaro. Many favor Marangu because it is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope and direct path. However, the short time frame of the route makes altitude acclimatization slightly more difficult. The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the southeast. This is the only route that offers sleeping huts in dormitory-style accommodations in lieu of camping.
