HE MARANGU ROUTE:
This is the most easiest and popular route up Kilimanjaro and used by most trekking groups. A trek on this route usually takes five days (four nights) for the round trip. Most trekkers only go as far as Gillman's Point, on the crater rim at 5685m, as from here to the summit at Uhuru Peak and back requires another four hours of walking.

Marangu Route - 6Nights/7Days

Day 01: Nairobi - Arusha:
Today on arrival at Nairobi (early morning flight) or from your Nairobi hotel you will board the early morning shuttle bus to Arusha and be driven southwards to Namanga border of Kenya and Tanzania for immigration formalities and later proceed to Arusha where we will have our Lunch break before rejoining the bus to proceeding to Moshi for our full briefing and kit inspection before spending our night at
Hotel in Moshi.

Day 02: Marangu - Mandara Hut
After our morning breakfast we meet our guide and porters and from there we proceed to Marangu gate (1980m) the track passes through the forest which gives people an opportunity to observe the wildlife and enjoy the forest. Mandara Hut (2700m/9000ft) has a group of bunkhouses, in goods conditions, with bed capacity of 80 people, toilets and a clean water supply. From here we can visit the nearby Maundi Crater 2hrs walk and a small mound rising out of the trees to the north. Views from the top, over the forest up to the main peaks of Kibo and Mawenzi, provide plenty of inspiration for the trek to come. Meals and Overnight will be served at Mandara Hut.

Day 03: Mandara Hut - Horombo Hut
From Mandara Hut there are two paths running roughly parallel through the forest and then a narrow band of heather before meeting near the start of the moorland and to the right are the jagged peaks of Mawenzi, looking higher than Kibo from this angle, although undulating and steep in places, is easy to follow all the way up to Horombo Hut (3700m/12000ft). Meals and Overnight will be served at Horombo Hut.

Day 04: Horombo Hut - Kibo Hut
From here we continue gradually gaining height, past the Last Water point which is the highest running water on this route and cross the flat plain between Kibo and Mawenzi until we meet Jiwe La Ukoyo (meaning "pointed Rocks") at 4394m. From here Kibo Hut will take us another one and half hour which is at 4700m. Meals and Overnight will be served at Kibo Hut.

Day 05: Kibo Hut - Uhuru Peak - Horombo Hut
After our third night at Kibo hut we usually start walking very early in the morning in order for us to see the sunrise from the crater rim, and give us a chance of avoiding the mist. Also, the scree slope up to Gillman's Point, and the snow on the path to Uhuru Peak, will still be frozen, which will make the walking safer and less strenuous. Sunrises at a round 6am and we should allow ourselves 5 to 6 hrs from Kibo Hut to Gillman's Point (5680m), plus another 2hrs to reach Uhuru peak (5896m). From Uhuru or Gillman's Point we descend on the same route and it will take us one to 2hrs-3hrs to Horombo Hut. Meals and Overnight will be served at Horombo Hut.

Day 06: Horombo Hut - Marangu Gate
On this last day we retrace our step and down on the path to park gate. Meals and Overnight will be served at your Moshi Hotel for celebrations.

Day 07: Arusha - Nairobi.
After our morning leisurely breakfast we board a shuttle bus and head back to Nairobi arriving at late afternoon. (Optional after this climbing is Kenya Safari or Airport transfer)
