About The Marangu Route:

The Marangu Trek is the most popular route up Mt Kilimanjaro. Despite the human traffic, it can be fun to come together with other international like-minded travellers. This route has a well-defined path and accommodation in huts, resulting in a "climber-friendly trekking experience." The Marangu Trek is a scenic route with good views of Mt Mawenzi Volcanic Cone and excellent chances for viewing wildlife. The route offers moderate climbing from the starting point to the Kibo huts followed by a more strenuous path to reach the summit.
