The Marangu route is one of the most popular routes to the summit of Kilimanjaro that allowed hikers to ascents and descend in the same routes. But also offer accommodations in huts/banda. This could partially be the fact that the Marangu is inexpensive route; it is possible to do the Marangu route in 5 days, thus getting to the summit one day earlier compared to the Machame route. Though is not the best idea due to a shorter acclimatization time, we recommend at least 6 days. The difference between the Marangu 5 days and 6 days routes is the additional acclimatization day at Horombo Hut which it will take you to Zebra rocks.
