“The roof of Africa”


The Marangu Route has a moderate slope compared to other routes making it less difficult to ascend. It is the only route with emergency evacuation services, huts and dining rooms. Due to these benefits, it has become the most popular route, and therefore can also be the most crowded, especially during high season.
