The Marangu, or “Coca-Cola,” path on Kilimanjaro is understandably popular with climbers. It is exceptional in that it offers more comfort thanks to its permanent cottages. The Coca-Cola Route also offers stunning views of Kilimanjaro’s Mawenzi and Kibo summits. The 6-day and 5-day treks on the Marangu Route are available; for seasoned trekkers, the latter is recommended.
If this is going to be your first climb, the 5-day Marangu Route schedule is recommended due to its longer acclimatization period. For those who want to climb Kilimanjaro on Marangu, they can anticipate a trip that spans 64 kilometers (40 miles) in pleasant weather, yielding a 92% success rate for the longer program.
