Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing via Marangu Route 8 Days
The tightly packed trees with emerald sheaves line the foreground and in the backdrop the crown of Kilimanjaro’s stone ashen mountains with snow topped peaks make their presence known. The journey between transports you to the golden dunes of the desert and up the soft beds of the ice fields before reaching the summit. The scenic views of the landscapes are astounding. The 6 days Marangu Route is favoured by many due to the obvious nature of the path and its gradual incline increase. Are you willing to sacrifice the comfort of sleeping in a bed? Don’t fret, the Marangu Route is the only route that offers accommodation. The sleeping huts resemble dormitories and each bunk bed is equipped with a sponge mattress and pillow. Bathrooms and running water are available at the lower huts. Kibo uses a basic latrine system and buckets of water are available. The 6 days Marangu Route is highly recommended by experts due to the extra acclimatization day. All hikers eat their breakfast and evening meals in a dining hut and this creates an enjoyable, social atmosphere.
