7 Days -Kilimanjaro-Marangu Route
Marangu Route is the easiest and shortest route to Kilimanjaro’s summit. Marangu route boasts of being the only route on Kilimanjaro with the comforts of solar-powered sleeping huts and beds at each camp. There are communal huts and each bunk has a sponge mattress and pillow. There are 60 beds at both Mandara and Kibo Huts and 120 beds at Horombo Hut. The two lower huts have got bathrooms and running water facilities while the last camp provides basic men’s and ladies’ latrines. There are common dining huts to share meals. Soft drinks, bottled water, and beer may be for sale at the huts. It’s advisable to bring small Tanzanian bills to purchase these items (prices increase with elevation). This route is usually done in 5 days, could be done in 6 days for better acclimatization. The extra day could be spent resting at Horombo or climbing to a basecamp below Kibo’s sub peak Mawenzi.
