Marangu route is the only route in Kilimanjaro with the comforts of solar powered sleeping huts and comfortable beds at every camp. Climbing Kilimanjaro Marangu Route is by far the most popular route to the summit of Kilimanjaro. This could partly be as a result of the fact that the Marangu is the least expensive route, but more so, perhaps the fact that it is possible to do the Marangu route in 5 days, thereby getting to the summit one day earlier than on the Machame route. Climbing Kilimanjaro Marangu Route is the easiest and shortest route, Kilimanjaro’s summit and is known as the “coca cola” or “tourist” route.
