The itinerary for the 5 days Marangu route Kilimanjaro climbing

Day 1: Marangu Gate to Mandara Hut

Your 5-day Marangu route journey begins at the Marangu Gate, where the hike to Mandara Hut commences. Covering approximately 8 kilometers and lasting around 4-5 hours, this trip offers a gentle introduction to the trek. You'll traverse lush rainforests, listening to the enchanting sounds of native wildlife. Mandara Hut, situated at 2,700 meters above sea level, provides comfortable lodging, while oxygen levels remain plentiful. Expect mild temperatures as you start your ascent.

Day 2: Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut

Today's destination is Horombo Hut, spanning approximately 12 kilometers and taking 5-7 hours to complete. As you ascend, the trail's beauty intensifies with alpine meadows and panoramic views of the Mawenzi and Kibo peaks. Vegetation gradually transitions from rainforest to moorland, and snow becomes visible on the distant mountaintops. Horombo Hut, nestled at 3,720 meters, offers cozy accommodations and a comfortable oxygen level. However, temperatures drop noticeably at this higher altitude.

Day 3: Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut

Prepare for a challenging day as you make your way to Kibo Hut, covering around 9 kilometers over 5-6 hours. The trail unveils a barren alpine desert with remarkable scenery, and the snow-capped summit draws ever closer. Accommodations at Kibo Hut, located at 4,703 meters, are more basic, and the oxygen level begins to decrease noticeably. Nighttime temperatures can be quite cold, making it crucial to stay warm.

Day 4: Kibo Hut to Summit and Back to Horombo Hut

The summit day is both demanding and awe-inspiring as you trek to Uhuru Peak. Biking isn't feasible due to steep terrain, so you'll journey on foot. This strenuous ascent and descent will take approximately 12-16 hours in total. As you reach the summit, at an astounding 5,895 meters above sea level, you'll be greeted by an amazing landscape devoid of vegetation and covered in snow. Accommodations return to Horombo Hut for a more comfortable rest at a lower altitude. Expect frigid temperatures at night.

Day 5: Horombo Hut to Marangu Gate

The final day of your 5-day Kilimanjaro climbing adventure takes you from Horombo Hut back to the Marangu Gate, spanning approximately 20 kilometers. You'll descend through rainforests, once again hearing the lively chatter of wildlife. Vegetation flourishes, and the snow-covered summit becomes a distant memory. As you approach the Marangu Gate, you'll reflect on the incredible journey you've undertaken, celebrating your achievement of conquering Kilimanjaro.
