THE CLIMB ROUTE

Main / Marungu Route


The Marangu or main route is by far the most popular way up Kilimanjaro. The forest is very beautiful and Maundi Grater is worth a visit just for the flowers and scenery. There are wonderful views of Kibo and Mawenzi. It generally takes five days for the round trip:

    Day I:   Marangu to Mandara Hut
   
   
Day 2:  Mandara to Horombo Hut

    Day 3:  Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut

   
Day 4:   Kibo Hut to Summit
                  to Horombo Hut

   
Day 5:   Horombo Hut to Marangu

The schedule, trails and accommodation are designed to allow visitors to acclimate. An extra day at Horombo, Mawanzi or Kibo Huts is recommended to allow even more time to get used to the altitude.
