The Marangu route also known as ‘Coca-Cola’ route is the most popular thus a high-traffic route on Kilimanjaro. It is the only non-camping route on Kilimanjaro where trekkers sleep in dormitory-like huts. Marangu is mistakeably considered as the easiest route and due to this reputation, it is often selected by many unprepared and inexperienced trekkers. As a result, only a migre 35% of climbers using this route actually make it to the summit at Uhuru peak.   Scenically, Marangu route has great views of the rain forest, Mawenzi peak, and the landscape below as well as the magnificient vista from the summit.

Marangu route is ideal for those who are not confident in their ability to hike over steeper paths and are not comfortable sleeping under a tent.

The route takes five days minimum to complete, although six days is more practical and recommended.
