9 Days Climbing Kilimanjaro – Marangu Route in 6 Days

The Marangu route might be one of the cheapest and quickest routes to the summit, but it still has plenty of wow moments in store for you. You still get to dive into the mountain’s nature on different trails and enjoy the view from the top.

The downside: it can be quite busy, especially during peak season, you have less time to get used to the altitude and you take the same route for your descent which is why you get to see less of the spectacular scenery.

However, if you’re not too much into camping, you’ll be happy to hear that this route offers hut accomodation. And one last fun fact: it’s also called the “Coca-Cola” route… just in case you want to impress your fellow hikers and guides 😉

Tanzania Specialist offers a unique service throughout the climb
