Kilimanjaro - Marangu Route Overview
- 2014-01-01 - 2014-12-31
Conquer the highest peak in Africa, mighty Mt Kilimanjaro
This classic Tanzania trek is the most popular route to Mt Kilimanjaro and the only one serviced by mountain huts to provide protection from the elements. We hike along the most direct path to the summit of Kilimanjaro and cover the trail in just five days, with the help of experienced guides and porters. Hike through forests and alpine meadows, over rocky ravines and past lunar landscapes to the spectacular summit of Africa's highest peak. The panoramic views from the top of Mt Kilimanjaro must be seen to be believed.
What's included in this trip
Kilimanjaro - Marangu Route SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Nestled at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro, Marangu is a small village surrounded by stunning vistas and lush forest.
Walk through picturesque fields of heather to get to the huts at Mandara (2,725 m), built in an A-frame style and housing 6-8 bunks.
Changing vegetation and diverse landscapes pave the way to Horombo Huts (3,780 m), a gathering of A-frames sitting on a rocky plateau.
Hike through spartan landscapes to reach Kibo Hut (4,740 m), a communal stone house with bunk beds and a small camp office.
Perhaps see snow on the challenging climb to Uhuru Peak (5,896 m) and feel the exhilaration while witnessing never-to-be-forgotten views of the crater, ice fields and lands below.
Marangu's hotel offers a lush garden, hot showers, a pool and a bar/restaurant - all watched over by the stunning peaks of Kilimanjaro.
