Marangu Route "the Coca-Cola route", continues to be one of the popular Mt Kilimanjaro trekking routes. The relative "comfort" of sleeping in huts is especially welcome if climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in the rainy season (March to May and November).
The huts are furnished with bunk beds and climbers are supplied with mattresses and pillows. The huts have communal dining halls and basic washrooms, ranging from flushing toilets and running water to long drop toilets and buckets of water at Kibo Hut. There is also solar power inside the huts. This is the only route where climbing and descending follow the same route.
