The oldest, most popular & with Hut Accommodation
The Marangu Route is the oldest on Kilimanjaro and is also one of the most popular – mainly because it averages at 8 degrees incline from Gate to Kibo Hut and is the only route on the mountain that has huts provided for hikers. There are 60 bunk beds each at Mandara and Kibo Huts, and 120 bunk beds at Horombo Hut. The Huts come equipped with solar generated lighting, flush toilets and water piped in from a nearby mountain stream. Each hut has 6-8 bunk beds.
The Marangu route can be completed in 6 days, it is recommended that climbers take an extra day to acclimatise at Horombo Hut. The Marangu Route differs from the other routes on Kilimanjaro as the ascent is exactly the same as the descent and therefore there is not as much variety in settings compared to other routes.
