5 Days Kilimanjaro Luxury Hiking via the Marangu Route
The Marangu route is also referred to as the "Coca-Cola" route, as it is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope, direct path, and the most comfortable route to reach the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro.
It is the oldest and the most well-established route on Kilimanjaro. The route is well-developed and the climb is constant and moderate. Only the approach to the summit is the exception as it is slightly more demanding. This is the only route that offers sleeping huts dormitory-style. The accommodation on this tour is in simple mountain huts, which might be an advantage compared to the camping routes.

Guests are supplied with mattresses and pillows, but sleeping bags are still required. The huts have communal dining halls, basic washrooms, and toilets. The short time frame of the route makes altitude acclimatization fairly difficult. The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the southeast. Marangu is, unfortunately, less scenic than the other routes because the ascent and descent are along the same path. It is one of a crowded routes for that reason
The main itinerary difference between the Marangu 5-days and 6-days Marangu route is the additional acclimatization day at Horombo on day three.
