The Marangu Route is sometimes jokingly referred to as the ‘Coca Cola route’ and ‘tourist route’. This is because it is perceived as being easy and the fact that Coca Cola, candy and other confectionery is sometimes sold at the huts based on the route.
This is the only route which offers shared hut accommodation with dormitory-style bunk beds. This means you’ll have a firm roof, but it also reduces your level of privacy.
It is the only route where climbers ascend and descend the same way.
