    6 Days Marangu Route Kilimanjaro is also known as the “Coca Cola” or “tourist” route. Marangu Route Kilimanjaro is the easiest and shortest route to the summit. This is also the only route with the comforts of sleeping huts at every campsite with solar lights and comfortable beds. The huts are communal, and the bunks have a sponge mattress and pillow. 6 Days Marangu Route Kilimanjaro is considered to be one of the easier paths to the summit, given its gradual slope and direct path. Our expert guides will ensure everything goes smoothly from top to bottom while you enjoy the challenge of summiting Kilimanjaro. The Marangu or main route is by far the most popular way to the summit. The accommodation on the way up and down is provided in mountain huts with all the necessities.

    Day 1: Arrive In Tanzania

    Upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport – Mowgli Safari Tours representative will be waiting outside the secured area to warmly welcome you to Tanzania. The road transfer to your hotel in Arusha will be approximately 2 hours. After check-in, your safari guide will brief you on the following day's schedule, review a safari safety checklist and answer any questions you may have.

    Day 2 : Marangu Gate To Mandara Hut

    After breakfast, you will be collected from your hotel and taken to the Marangu gate. Once the necessary paperwork has been completed, your trek can begin and you will soon be hiking through the dense rainforest. Alongside the impressive vegetation, you will have the chance to catch a glimpse of some primates as you head to the Mandara Hut.

    Day 3 : Mandara Hut To Horombo Hut

    The day begins with an early breakfast. Shortly after you have left Mandara Hut, you will reach the timberline and then enter the heath and moor zone. Approximately 4 – 6 hours later, the Horombo Hut will come into sight, standing at an altitude of 3700m. From the hut, you will have fantastic views overlooking Mawenzi, Kibo, and the wide plain of the Masai steppe.

    Day 4 : Horombo Hut To Kibo Hut

    Ascending, we now pass the last watering point, walking onto the saddle of Kilimanjaro between the peaks of Kibo and Mawenzi. Vegetation begins with upper heathland but then disappears into "moonscape". Dinner, rest and prepare for the summit climb.

    Day 5 : Kibo Hut To Uhuru Peak To Horombo Hut

    Today is “The Big Day” - the summit stage. You will begin your final ascent around midnight which will be long and strenuous. Passing the Hans Meyer Cave at 5220m, the climb slowly but surely goes upwards. At sunrise, you will reach Gillman’s Point (5681m) the crater rim of Kilimanjaro where the sun will slowly start to warm up the land. You will have soon forgotten the cold of the night and after a further hike of 1 - 2 hours, you will reach Uhuru Peak at 5895m. On your return to Kibo Hut, a warm meal awaits you followed by a 1 - 2 hour break before proceeding back down to Horombo Hut.

     

    Day 6 : Horombo Hut To Marangu Gate

    The last stage passes through the heath and moor zone to the Mandara Hut (2700m) where a warm lunch is waiting for you. Soon, you will once again pass the tropical rainforest and after a total time of 6 hours trekking, you will be back at the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate (1860m). After saying goodbye to your mountain guides, a short transfer follows to take you back to your hotel in Moshi. Once there, you can take a warm and relaxing shower and celebrate your success in reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro.
