5 days
$1200 to 1400

The Marangu Route is also known as the \”Coca Cola\” or \”tourist\” route. It is the easiest and shortest
route to the summit. This is also the only route with the comforts of sleeping huts at every camp
site with solar lights and comfortable beds. The huts are communal, and the bunks have a sponge
mattress and pillow. Summit night from Kibo Hut is steep and passes Gilman’s Point to Uhuru
Peak. It is a shorter route with a steeper incline and less time for acclimatization it tends to have a
lower summit success rate. This is the only route where the ascent and descent route is shared, thus
creating more traffic.

Day4 Kibo Hut to Summit (Uhuru peak) and Descent to Horombo
Around midnight, awake for the final ascent to Uhuru Peak, the roof of Africa. The hike begins
with a demanding five hour hike to Gillman\'s Point on the crater rim. Although this is considered
to be the easiest of the three crater ascent paths, it is still extremely difficult. The first major rest
stop, William\'s Point, lies at 5000 meters and is approximately a two hour hike Kibo Hut. Continue
on for thirty minutes before beginning the rocky switchbacks that will continue to Gillman\'s Point
(5,681 meters).
The hike from Gilman\'s to Uhuru Peak is a gradual climb and as far as hikes go, not very difficult.
The altitude, however, makes the hike long and tiring. The crater rim hike takes approximately two
hours. Upon reaching Uhuru, take photos of your guide and group at the peak before beginning the
descent to Horombo Hut.
On the way down from the summit, you will see all of the magnificent views you could not see on
the way up. Stop for a short break and snacks at Kibo Hut before continuing on to Horombo Hut.
Reach Horombo Hut in the afternoon and enjoy your last night on the mountain.
