  • MARANGU (Coca Cola route); this is the traditional and most straightforward route on the mountain. It is also the busiest and best equipped. If you accept that there will be others around, there are the advantages of good huts, good views of Mawenzi and, of course, others to walk with. If you are traveling by yourself, this is the only route on which you can easily join a group from other operators and walk together.

    The extra day is highly recommended for improved acclimatization. Be clear whether or not this is included in your trip.
