The Marangu route is known as the ‘Coca-Cola’ route. It is the most popular route to trek Mount Kilimanjaro.It is the only non-camping route and here trekkers sleep in dormitory- like huts. It is mistakably considered the easiest route due to its reputation and is often selected by many unprepared and inexperienced trekkers; ensuring only a meager 35% of the climbers using this route make it to the summit, the Uhuru Peak.In terms of scenery, Marangu route has breathtaking views of the tropical rain forest, Mawenzi Peak, the landscapes below and the vista from the summit.
