Description

The Marangu Route, also known as the “Coca-Cola” route, is the most popular and affordable option for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. As the only route with overnight stays in huts, it’s a great choice for hiking during the rainy season. This well-trodden trail takes you through various climate zones, from tropical rainforests to eternal ice, treating you to scenic African landscapes. The 6-day option is strongly recommended for better acclimatization.
