The Marangu Route has been referred to as the 'Coca Cola' route and this has led potential
climbers to think that it is an easy route to the summit. This is far from the truth to be
honest! The fact that it requires a minimum of 5 days to complete it does not mean that it
is easier than any other route. The only reason that people say it is easier is because it
is the only route up Kilimanjaro where you sleep in huts as opposed to tents.
An optional acclimatization day at Horombo Huts is highly recommended for those with no
prior trekking in altitude experience under their belt. Advance booking of hut accommodation
is required to avoid any inconveniences. The route starts from the park headquarters in the
village of Marangu and heads straight westwards towards Kibo. The trail goes through lush
rainforest, heath and moorland to alpine desert and ultimately the arctic zone at the peak
and same route down.
