Kilimanjaro Classic Climb via Marangu route- 8 Days

The Kilimanjaro Classic Climb via Marangu route in unique in a sense that it provides extra comfort to the travelers with their permanent sleeping huts. Spectacular vistas of the Mawenzi and Kibo Peaks during the hike are something to relish as you walk the gradual slopes and more direct paths. This route is considered by many as the easiest as well as the busiest among all other routes. Commonly known as the Coca Cola route, it was the first established commercial trekking route on Kilimanjaro. This busy route encompasses scenic detours past rainforest waterfalls and picturesque plant life before making the final ascent to the top. Considering an extra night at Horombo Hut for acclimatization is indeed very crucial on this route as the short time frame makes altitude adaptation quite difficult. After reaching the top of the peak, you will descend down walking the same path and exit through the same gate that you entered earlier.
