6 day climb Kilimanjaro hiking is moderate, despite the difficult final section to the summit. The so-called easier route has the highest failure rate due to improper planning and impetuous attempts. The aforementioned circumstances have prompted KINAPA officials to emphasize and take serious action against those who climb Mount Kilimanjaro via the Marangu route. . Every campsite along this route has good radio reception for connecting to the park office. These camps sell some products, including mineral water, soft drinks, beer, and chocolates.
6 days Kilimanjaro hiking via Marangu is also known as the “Coca-Cola” route due to its gentle slope and direct path. It is the most well-known and well-established route up Mount Kilimanjaro, and it is also the only one that provides dormitory-style sleeping huts. Although mattresses and pillows are provided, sleeping bags are still necessary. The huts have basic toilets, washrooms, and communal dining areas. Altitude acclimatization is fairly difficult due to the route’s short duration.
When you arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport, our driver guide will be waiting to pick you up and take you to your hotel. Your guide will give you a pre-trip briefing and check your equipment to make sure you have everything you need for the mountains. On this day, you can rent any equipment that is missing. You will have an overnight stay at you reserved lodge.
You will be picked up from your Moshi lodging after breakfast and driven to the Marangu gate.

While traveling to the Mandara Hut, you will have the opportunity to see some primates in addition to the impressive vegetation. Once you’ve had a well-earned rest, your guide can take you to the Maundi Crater so you can take in the breathtaking views of Kenya’s interior.
A leisurely breakfast kicks off the day. You will soon arrive at the timberline and then move into the heath and moor area after leaving Mandara Hut. The Horombo Hut, which is located at a height of 3700 meters, will become visible approximately 4 to 6 hours later. Fantastic views of Mawenzi, Kibo, and the expansive Masai steppe can be seen from the hut.
This stage takes a lot of time and effort. The “Last Water point,” which is followed by the alleged “saddle,” is passed by the well-built trail. This plateau, which joins Kibo and Mawenzi’s main summits, is almost entirely devoid of vegetation. The Kibo Hut is where we’re going today, and it usually takes 5 to 6 hours to get there. You will eat dinner early and go to bed early because the night will be brief here.

The final stage leads to the Mandara Hut (2700m), where a warm lunch is waiting for you after passing through the heath and moor zone.
