Better known as the Coca-Cola Trail, the Marangu Route is the oldest, most well-established, and considered the easiest of all Kilimanjaro routes. Marangu is by far the most popular route used for summiting Kilimanjaro. The reason behind this could be the fact that the Marangu is the least expensive route, but more so, perhaps the fact that it is possible to do the Marangu Route in 5 or 6 days.
It’s also the only route that offers mountain hut accommodation, a bonus when the weather is not always sunny and dry. All your equipment and supplies are carried by porters and a cook prepares all your meals. The route ascent and descent are done via the same trails.
