Known as the “Coca-Cola” route, Marangu approaches Kilimanjaro from the southeast. It is the oldest, most well established route. Many favor Marangu because it is considered to be the easiest route on the mountain, given its gradual slope and direct path. The minimum days required for this route is five, although the probability of successfully reaching the top in that time period is quite low. Spending an extra acclimatization day on the mountain is highly recommended.

The Marangu route is a classic trek to the top of Kilimanjaro. However, it has the least scenic variety of all routes (ascent and descent are done on the same path) and is the most crowded for that reason.


  • Arrival Day
  • Arrival at Kilimanjaro airport - you will be collected by your driver and transfer to Arusha or Moshi for overnight.
  • Day 1: Mandara Huts
  • After breakfast, head towards the Marangu Gate and once the necessary paper work has been completed, you start hiking through the dense rainforest.
  • Enjoy the impressive vegetation and the relatively short walking day of approximately 4 hrs when you reach at the Mandara Hut. After a well-earned rest, your guide can take you to the Maundi Crater where you can enjoy the wonderful view of the Kenyan interior
  • O/n Mandara Hut at 2650 meters (B, L, D)
  • Day 2: Horombo Huts
  • Today you will reach the timberline - climb up through giant Alpine forest and across moor lands onto the slopes of the Mawenzi massif, lunch on the way. The walk will take 4-7 hours before you reach Horombo hut. This is a long day about 14 km but taken at a slow easy pace with rest stops en-route.
  • O/n Horombo Hut at 3700 meters (B, L, D)
  • Day 3: Horombo Huts
  • Leisurely breakfast at Horombo - spend the day acclimatizing. After a leisurely breakfast, head off on a walk accompanied by your guide to gain altitude greater than that of Horombo Hut. Return for hot lunch followed by relaxation and overnight.
  • O/n Horombo Hut at 3700 meters (B, L, D)
  • Day 4: Kibo Huts
  • Today’s stage is long and tough. After breakfast, continue the climb towards Kibo Hut – a fairly long day with 13km to cover. The trail passes the so-called “saddle”, a vegetation less plateau joins the main summit Kibo with Mawenzi. Today’s destination is reached in about 5 - 6 hours. Enjoy an early evening and try to get some rest as the night will be very short.
  • O/n Kibo Hut at 4700 meters (B, L, D)
  • Day 5: Summit Day
  • Early wakeup call in preparation for the summit attempt – after hot drinks and a small snack you slowly at a steady pace, start the last part of you ascent to Uhuru peak. If all goes to plan you should reach the summit at 5,896 meters in time to catch the sunrise. After the victory dance and pictures have been taken begin the descent to Horombo Hut.
