Answer ( 1 )

  1. For many years Marangu used to be the most popular Kilimanjaro route. It has now been delegated to number two by the Machame route (see below).
    Duration: 5 days, acclimatization day can be added
    Advantages:

    Low cost.
    Accommodation is in huts, no camping equipment needed.
    Supposedly the easiest route. (I beg to differ.)

    Disadvantages:

    Lowest success rate. (See? Not that easy after all!)
    Very crowded.
    Camping is not allowed.
    The only route that uses the same way up and down.
