What to Expect on 7 Days Climbing Kilimanjaro Marangu Route
Climbing Kilimanjaro Marangu Route, Mount Kilimanjaro hiking safari, Kilimanjaro Trekking

Marangu is the easiest route on Mount Kilimanjaro. Its ascension profile is very gradual and steady, allowing for painless trekking for most of the way. However, due to its reputation as an easy route, Marangu is often selected by unprepared, inexperienced climbers. Correspondingly, only about 35% of the people actually make it to the top.

There are beds at both mandara and kibo huts and 120 beds at horombo hut. Bathrooms and running water are available at the two lower huts. This route is usually done in 6 days, but you can do it in 7 days for better acclimatization. You can spend your extra day resting at horombo or climbing to a base camp below kilo’s sub peak mawenzi.
