Days to complete: Five days is the minimum, but Kilimanjaro-Experience only does the six day trek
Marangu route is the oldest route and is often considered the easiest. It is nicknamed the Coca Cola Route, it is popular and can be crowded. It approaches Kili from the southeast and passes through beautiful rainforest and moorlands. The ascent on this route is constant and moderate, and the trekking is relatively relaxed compared to sections of other routes. This is a good bet for those concerned about their fitness. Marangu has good paths and gradual tracks. However, the constant ascension makes for a poor acclimatisation profile.
In contrast to the other routes, you overnight in mountain huts that will protect you from the elements, as opposed to sleeping in tents. Following this route, you ascend and descend on the same route and you will meet other groups travelling in the opposite direction.
