For better readability, we use the male address in this itinerary.
Mount Kilimanjaro - Marangu Route from Marangu Gate (1,860m) to Mandara Hut (2,715m)
After breakfast, leave Arusha, drive to Moshi and then on to the gate of Kilimanjaro National Park. The drive passes through the village of Marangu, which lies on the lower slopes of the mountain. Once at the park gate, all hikers are asked to report to the park office and make their final preparations for the climb. After exiting the park gate, ascend a cleared ridge path through the rainforest. The mist-streaked forest dripping with moss beards is also where most of Kilimanjaro's animals are found. Be enchanted by the breathtaking landscape of Mount Kilimanjaro!
We recommend this day hike for travelers who have previous hiking experience.
Optional: This route can be extended for experienced hikers to Maundi Crater (3,000m)
Mandara Hut 2,715m to Maundi Crater 3,000m
From Mandara Hut the trail passes through a short patch of forest, circles the base of Maundi Crater and then enters a transition from rainforest to moorland. It's worth hiking up the short detour to the rim of Maundi Crater for your first truly impressive view of Kibo Crater. On a clear day, Kibo will shimmer in the distance, showing off its majestic glaciers in the morning sun. Once in the open moorland, you also have the opportunity to see some of Kilimanjaro's most spectacular plants, including the endemic giant lobelia, which grows to 3m tall. After a 3 hour descent you will reach the gate and drive back to Moshi for some much needed rest.
