MARANGU ROUTE 6 DAYS ITINERARY
Marangu Route:
The Marangu Route is also known as the “Coca Cola” or “tourist” route. It is the easiest
and shortest route to the summit. This is also the only route with the comforts of
sleeping huts with solar lights and comfortable beds. The huts are communal, and the
bunks have a sponge mattress and pillow. All climbing groups, often from several
countries around the world, share meals in dining huts providing a jovial and energetic
atmosphere. This route is usually done on 5 days but can be done in 6 days for better
acclimatization. The extra day can be spent resting at Horombo Huts or climbing the
small peak of Mawenzi.

DAY 1 MARANGU GATE (1860M) TO MANDARA HUT (2700M)
Mandara Hut
After breakfast, you will be collected from your lodge in Moshi and taken to the Marangu
gate. Once the necessary paper work 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. After a well-earned rest, your guide can take you to the Maundi Crater
where you can enjoy the wonderful view of the Kenyan interior.
– Distance covered: 8.3km / 5.2mi
– Approx. time taken: 5 hours
– Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

DAY 2 MANDARA HUT (2700M) TO HOROMBO HUT (3700M)
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.
– Distance covered: 12.5km / 7.8mi
– Approx. time taken: 9 hours
– Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

DAY 3 ACCLIMATIZATION TREK TO ZEBRA ROCKS (4020M) THEN BACK TO
HOROMBO HUT (3700M)
Horombo Hut
Today serves as an acclimatization day. This should not be underestimated and greatly
improves your chance of success in reaching the summit. After a relaxing breakfast, a 4
hour trek follows to the Zebra Rocks (4020m). The distinctive black and white stripes
give the rock formation its name. On your return to Horombo Hut, a warm lunch will be
waiting for you. You can relax in the afternoon and regain your strength for the hike the
following day.
– Distance covered: 5km / 3.1mi
– Approx. time taken: 4 hours
– Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

DAY 4 HOROMBO HUT (3700M) TO KIBO HUT (4700M)
Kibo Huts
Today’s stage is long and tough. The well-built trail passes the “Last Water point” which
is followed by the so-called “saddle”. This nearly vegetation less plateau joins the main
summit Kibo with Mawenzi. Today’s destination is the Kibo Hut that is usually reached
in about 5 – 6 hours. Here, you will enjoy an early evening meal followed by an early
night, as the night will be short.
– Distance covered: 9.5km / 5.9mi
– Approx. time taken: 7 hours
– Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

DAY 5 KIBO HUT (4700M) TO UHURU PEAK (5895M) & DOWN TO
HOROMBO HUT (3700M)
Uhuru Peak
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.
– Distance covered: 22km / 13.7mi
– Approx. time taken: 12hours – 15hours
– Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

DAY 6 HOROMBO HUT (3700M) TO MARANGU GATE (1860M)
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/Arusha. Once there, you can
take a warm and relaxing shower and celebrate your success in reaching the summit of
the Kilimanjaro.
