Mt.Kilimanjaro trekking on Marangu Route

Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain on the African continent and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Mt. Kilimanjaro has three volcanic cones, Mawenzi, Shira and Kibo. Mawenzi and Shira are extinct but Kibo, the highest peak, is dormant and could erupt again.

The Marangu route, also known as the “Coca-Cola” route, is the oldest, most well established route on Kilimanjaro. This is the only route which offers sleeping huts in dormitory style accommodations in lieu of camping.

Itinerary

DAY 1: ARRIVAL in Arusha at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO)

Upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), your driver guide will meet you and drive to your hotel in Arusha town there you will be meet by our Kilimanjaro expert, who will provide you with a trekking briefing.
Enjoy great views of Mt. Kilimanjaro’s snow-capped Uhuru Peak; while you settle in over dinner have a good rest.
Standard Accommodation: Ilboru Safari Lodge, (meals on bed and breakfast basis)
Comfort Accommodation: Four Points by Sheraton, (meals on bed and breakfast basis)
Luxury Accommodation: Gran Melia, (meals on bed and breakfast basis)

DAY 2: Arusha – Mandara Hut (2,700 m); 3-5 hours walking

Morning after breakfast you will depart to Marangu. After completing the entrance formalities at the National Park gate (1,830 m.) we climb up through attractive and unspoilt forest to reach the clearing containing (2,700 m.). The volcanic remains of Maundi Crater are nearby, and make a good afternoon excursion. An alternative is to simply rest and enjoy the beautiful forest around you. Dinner and overnight camping at Mandara Hut.

DAY 3: Horombo Hut (3,720 m); 4-6 hours walking.

The first part of the walk is a steep ascent through forest, but the path soon opens out into grassy moorland and, in clear weather, there are good views of Kibo and Mawenzi peaks. We climb steadily through the moorland zone, containing giant heather and occasional stands of groundsel, to eventually reach the hut complex at Horombo (3,720 m.). Sunrises and sunsets here are often very spectacular, the site is close to the glaciated dome of Kibo, and there is a real sense of being above the clouds.
Dinner and overnight at Horombo Hut, all meals included.

DAY 4: Horombo Hut to further improve our acclimatization.

The day is spent making an excursion towards the base of the seldom visited Mawenzi peak, which affords excellent views of Kibo and our route up to the crater rim at Gillman’s Point. Mawenzi is an older volcano than Kibo and so has eroded further into a very jagged ridge with dramatic pinnacles. The landscape feels more alpine and there is a greater sense of peacefulness than in other locations on this route. We will spend a second night at Horombo Hut to further improve our acclimatization. 4-5 hours walking.
Dinner and overnight at Horombo Hut, all meals included.

Day 5:Kibo Hut (4,700 m.); 4-6 hours walking

We climb very gradually towards the lunar desert of the Saddle between Mawenzi and Kibo. The terrain changes to scree and there is a palpable sense of high altitude wilderness. We usually reach Kibo Hut (4,700 m.) at the bottom of the crater wall by midday and the afternoon is free (to contemplate the summit ascent!!). The remainder of the day is spent resting and eating in preparation for the final climb before a very early night. Dinner and overnight at Kibo Hut, all meals included.

Day 6:Kibo to Horombo Hut

We will start our ascent by torchlight at about 1 a.m. so that we can be up at Gillman’s Point by sunrise. The initial climb is steep over loose volcanic scree, but there are some well-graded zig-zags and a slow but steady pace will have us up to Gillman’s (5,685 m.) in about five or six hours. We will rest there and spend some time taking in the sunrise. Those who are still feeling strong can make the three hour round trip from here along the crater rim to Uhuru Peak (5,896 m.), passing close to the spectacular glaciers that still occupy most of the summit area. The descent is surprisingly fast and we return to Horombo Hut for the night. 11-15 hours walking. Dinner and overnight at Horombo Hut, all meals included.

Day 7:Horombo hut to Marangu Gate.

We retrace our steps with a pleasant moorland walk to Mandara and then a lovely forest walk to the National Park gates. The greenness and lushness of the forest is quite a stunning contrast to the summit day, and it really makes you realize how varied the scenery on Kilimanjaro really is. [5-6 hours walking]
Standard Accommodation: Ilboru Safari Lodge, (meals on bed and breakfast basis)
Comfort Accommodation: Four Points by Sheraton, (meals on bed and breakfast basis)
Luxury Accommodation: Gran Melia, (meals on bed and breakfast basis)
