climbing mt Kilimanjaro via marangu route
2 years ago
USD 1890

Famously known as 'Coca-Cola Route', Marangu Route is the easiest, least expensive and by far the busiest route to the summit of Kilimanjaro just like sipping a coca-cola drink. Accommodations along this route are huts (not fancy by any means but equipped with solar power).The word Kilimanjaro is derived from the words “Kilima” and the word “Njaro”.

Kilima is a Swahili word meaning “Little Mountain” (which is ironic as it is not little at all). There are different theories regarding the origin of the word Njaro. Some say it is a Swahili word meaning ‘shinning’ and some say it is a Chagga (native tribe in the Kilimanjaro region) word meaning ‘caravan’.

Kilimanjaro is composed of three distinct volcanic cones: Kibo 5,895 m; Mawenzi 5,149 m; and Shira 3,962 m (13,000 ft). Uhuru Peak is the highest summit on Kibo’s crater rim.
