The Marangu path, also referred to as the “Coca-Cola” route, is a well-known journey up Mount Kilimanjaro. The oldest and most established route is this one. Given its gentle slope, the Marangu route is preferred by many since it is thought to be the easiest path on the mountain. Additionally, it is the only route that provides dormitory-style sleeping huts.
The least number of days needed for this trip is five, although the likelihood of successfully completing it in that time is very slim. When ascending Klimanjaro via the Marangu route, an additional day of acclimatization is strongly advised.
Because the ascent and descent follow the same path, the route has the least difference in scenery of all the routes and is also the busiest. Only in the rainy season, when hut accommodations are recommended, is Marangu popular.
