About
The Marangu Route has been referred to as the 'Coca Cola' route and this has led potential climbers to think that it is an easy route to the summit. This is far from the truth to be honest! The fact that it requires a minimum of 5 days to complete it does not mean that it is easier than any other route. The only reason that people say it is easier is because it is the only route up where you sleep in huts as opposed to tents. An optional acclimatization day at Horombo Huts is highly recommended for those with no prior trekking in altitude experience under their belt. Advance booking of hut accommodation is required to avoid any inconveniences. The route starts from the park headquarters in the village of Marangu and heads straight westwards towards Kibo. The trail goes through lush rainforest, heath and moorland to alpine desert and ultimately the arctic zone at the peak and same route down.

We choose Rupia Adventure for our trek, the guides John and Julius were professional and strong, we decided to trek via marangu after friends recommendations and good company is Rupia Adventure, everything were good, guides, porters and cook, the company provided extra oxygen cylinder, first aid and oxymeter, Julius checked us everyday to make sure we are doing well, summit day was bit difficult to us and challengeable, we thanks all Rupia Adventure team to make our dreams comes true
