Maragu route is one of the most popular ways to the summit of Kilimanjaro. It could be as a result of its least expenses, but more so less time consuming compared to the Machame route. However, it is not the best way due to a short time acclimatization period. Whatsoever, the path offers an extra day of acclimatization at the top of the mountain. This extends to a 6- day trek increasing chances of success. The shared hut accommodation gives the differences to other routes. Beverages and drinks are sold at all camps on the way
Climb through the MT Kilimanjaro Mountain.
