Marangu Route

Erklimme den Kilimanjaro in Tansania

Die Marangu-Route, auch bekannt als „Coca-Cola“-Route, ist die älteste und am besten etablierte Route auf dem Kilimandscharo. Dies ist die einzige Route, die anstelle von Camping Schlafhütten in Schlafsälen anbietet. Es gibt jeweils 60 Etagenbetten in der Mandara Hütte und der Kibo Hütte und 120 Etagenbetten in der Horombo Hütte. Die Gäste werden mit Matratzen und Kissen versorgt, aber Schlafsäcke sind weiterhin erforderlich.

Die Hütten verfügen über gemeinsame Speisesäle und einfache Waschräume, die von Spültoiletten und fließendem Wasser in den unteren Hütten bis hin zu langen Toiletten und Eimern mit Wasser in der Kibo-Hütte reichen. Viele bevorzugen Marangu, weil er aufgrund seiner allmählichen Steigung und seines direkten Weges als der einfachste Weg auf dem Berg gilt. Das kurze Zeitfenster der Route macht die Höhenakklimatisierung jedoch ziemlich schwierig.

Die Route nähert sich dem Kilimandscharo von Südosten. Die Marangu Route ist etwas weniger malerisch und abwechslungsreich als die anderen Routen, da der Auf- und Abstieg auf demselben Weg erfolgen. Aus diesem Grund ist es auch die am stärksten frequentierte Route. Tanzania Horizon Safaris bietet Marangu als fünf- oder sechstägige private Besteigung an. Die fünftägige Variante hat am dritten Tag keinen Akklimatisationstag in der Horombo-Hütte.

All Kilimanjaro Routes

After breakfast, you will be collected from your lodge in Moshi and taken to the Marangu gate. Once the necessary paper work has been completed, your trek can begin and you will soon be hiking through the dense rainforest. Alongside the impressive vegetation, you will have the chance to catch a glimpse of some primates as you head to the Mandara Hut. After a well-earned rest, your guide can take you to the Maundi Crater where you can enjoy the wonderful view of the Kenyan interior.

Distance covered: 8.3km / 5.2mi
Approx. time taken: 5 hours
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

The day begins with an early breakfast. Shortly after you have left Mandara Hut, you will reach the timberline and then enter the heath and moor zone. Approximately 4 – 6 hours later, the Horombo Hut will come into sight, standing at an altitude of 3700m. From the hut, you will have fantastic views overlooking Mawenzi, Kibo and the wide plain of the Masai steppe.

Distance covered: 12.5km / 7.8mi
Approx. time taken: 9 hours
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

Today’s stage is long and tough. The well-built trail passes the “Last Water point” which is followed by the so-called “saddle”. This nearly vegetation less plateau joins the main summit Kibo with Mawenzi. Today’s destination is the Kibo Hut that is usually reached in about 5 – 6 hours. Here, you will enjoy an early evening meal followed by an early night, as the night will be short.

Distance covered: 9.5km / 5.9mi
Approx. time taken: 7 hours
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

Today is “The Big Day” – the summit stage. You will begin your final ascent around midnight which will be long and strenuous. Passing the Hans Meyer Cave at 5220m, the climb slowly but surely goes upwards. At sunrise, you will reach Gillman’s Point (5681m) – the crater rim of Kilimanjaro – where the sun will slowly start to warm up the land. You will have soon forgotten the cold of the night and after a further hike of 1 – 2 hours, you will reach Uhuru Peak at 5895m. On your return to Kibo Hut, a warm meal awaits you followed by a 1 – 2 hour break before proceeding back down to Horombo Hut.

Distance covered: 22km / 13.7mi
Approx. time taken: 12 – 15 hours
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included
Horombo Hut (3700m) to Marangu Gate
(1860m)

The last stage passes through the heath and moor zone to the Mandara Hut (2700m) where a warm lunch is waiting for you. Soon, you will once again pass the tropical rainforest and after a total time of 6 hours trekking, you will be back at the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate (1860m). After saying goodbye to your mountain guides, a short transfer follows to take you back to your hotel in Moshi. Once there, you can take a warm and relaxing shower and celebrate your success in reaching the summit of the Kilimanjaro.

Distance covered: 20.8km / 12.9mi

Today serves as an acclimatization day. This should not be underestimated and greatly improves your chance of success in reaching the summit. After a relaxing breakfast, a 4 hour trek follows to the Zebra Rocks (4020m). The distinctive black and white stripes give the rock formation its name. On your return to Horombo Hut, a warm lunch will be waiting for you. You can relax in the afternoon and regain your strength for the hike the following day.
