Marangu Route

WELCOME TO THE TOURIST —COCA COLA ROUTE

Marangu Route is the oldest and most well established trekking route on Mount Kilimanjaro, and it remains extremely popular, despite a wide variety of other options becoming available

Kilimanjaro Marangu Route has the easiest route ascension profile, very gradual and steady. Marangu is often selected by unprepared or inexperienced climbers due to its reputation as an easy route.

This path provides trekkers with the classic Kilimanjaro climbing experience, offering sweeping views and a wonderful hiking adventure all the way to the summit of Uhuru Peak. That said, it also has some unique aspects that set it apart from any of the other routes as well, giving Marangu route a character and feeling that is entirely its own.

One of the more interesting aspects of Marangu Route is that it is the only route up Mount Kilimanjaro that doesn’t allow camping, so instead of sleeping in tents, trekkers stay in permanent huts instead.

Marangu Route variations

An additional acclimatization day is the main itinerary difference between the 5 Days Marangu Route and Marangu Route 6 Days.

Suricata Safaris offer the affordable Marangu Route cost as a six-day group or private climb for starting at US$2,285 per person. This package fee includes six days on the mountain and one day on either side at our partner lodge in the town of Moshi. If you have any other questions about your trip we are happy to help you.

Marangu Route tips

— Prepare a perfect playlist of your favorite songs to listen while climbing the summit.

— Try to stay positive even when the journey seems impossible as climbing can be physically and mentally challenging.

— Be sure to wear your hiking boots before your adventure to Kilimanjaro to avoid blisters.

— Be sure to pack a generous supply of wet wipes and be prepared not to shower for a week.

— To reduce the symptoms of altitude sickness, you must consume as much water as physically possible.

— You should also be mentally prepared for case of altitude sickness. Altitude sickness occurs on the third day of your hike; therefore, it is best to allow extra time in your itinerary where possible.

— We suggest you to add an extra night to your journey to reduce the impact of altitude sickness.

— Try to spend a few weekends camping to get familiar with using limited facilities so that it mentally prepares for the Kilimanjaro climbing and helps you overcome any small barriers you might encounter.

— The best time to climb Mount Kilimanjaro is from June to October.
