Marangu Route 6 Days is very different from others, once it is in dormitory style huts and solar energy. The huts have a communal dining room, washrooms and simple toilets where at lower altitudes the huts have flush toilets, but as you move up the mountain there will be “long drop” toilets. This is the only way in which the downward path is equal to the upward path.


Our driver will meet you at Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO) and take you to your hotel in Moshi. Do not worry if you are slow clearing customs, our driver will be waiting for as long as necessary. After you settle in at your hotel, we will go through an equipment check with you. If any items are lacking, they can be rented at this time. Your guide will meet you for a thorough pre-climb briefing where all questions will be answered. For night time arrivals these things can be done the early the next morning.

The landscape will change again today as you climb up into the alpine desert it will begin to look more like a lunar landscape!

It will still be dark when you begin your hike sometime around midnight. Today will be the most challenging day of the trek, as the air is very thin and you’ll be hiking some very steep switchbacks with heavy screen and tricky footing. After you’ve reached Gilman’s Point the sun should be up, and you’ll have the snow-capped peak in your sights. The view from the top of Uhuru Peak will be spectacular! Make sure to celebrate with lots of photos before you begin your descent back down to Kibo Hut for lunch and Horombo Hut for the night.
