Marangu Route - 7 days 6 nights

Also known as the 'Coca Cola' route due to the tea huts where Coke could be bought along the way. The Marangu route is the oldest of the routes and has one of the most established trails. Considered one of the easier routes, it is still challenging due to its short, beautiful but steep and demanding trek to Uhuru Peak (5895m). It is one of the most heavily used routes and in the rainy season can be very well trodden and muddy in some places. This is not the most technical route to climb and there are no tough scrambles or rocky steps to negotiate until the final summit night. The ascent and descent are done on the same path and this route is the only one with sleeping huts offering dormitory accommodation.
