Itinerary of the 6-Day Marangu Route Kilimanjaro Climbing Package

Day 1: Marangu Gate to Mandara Hut

Your 6-day Marangu route package begins with a drive from Moshi or Arusha to Marangu Gate. The trek starts through a dense rainforest, where you might spot blue monkeys and a variety of bird species. The trail is relatively flat and takes about 4-5 hours to reach Mandara Hut, situated at an altitude of 2,700 meters. The temperature here is usually warm during the day and cooler at night.

Day 2: Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut

On the second day, you will trek from Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut. The trail passes through the moorland zone, where you will see unique high-altitude vegetation such as giant lobelias and groundsels. The trek takes about 5–6 hours, and by the time you reach Horombo Hut at 3,720 meters, the temperature will have dropped significantly.

Day 3: Horombo Hut Full-Day Acclimatization

The third day of your 6-day Marangu route Kilimanjaro climbing package is dedicated to acclimatization. You will spend the day at Horombo Hut, taking short treks around the area to help your body adjust to the altitude. This is a crucial day that can greatly improve your chances of reaching the summit.

Day 4: Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut

On the fourth day, you will trek from Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut. The trail passes through the alpine desert zone, characterized by sparse vegetation and a lunar-like landscape. The trek takes about 5-6 hours, and Kibo Hut, situated at 4,703 meters, is noticeably colder, with temperatures often dropping below freezing at night.

Day 5: Kibo Hut to Uhuru Peak to Horombo Hut

The fifth day is the summit day. You will start your final ascent around midnight to reach Uhuru Peak at sunrise. The trail is steep and challenging, but reaching the summit and witnessing the sunrise over the plains below is a truly rewarding experience. After spending some time at the summit, you will descend back to Kibo Hut for a short rest before continuing down to Horombo Hut.
