1 Day-Trip Kilimanjaro Marangu Route

Your Day-Trip Kilimanjaro Marangu Route through the rain forest will be amazing, and you’ll get a taste of the mountain on this hike to the first hut.
The fact that you won’t need any specialized equipment for mountain climbing makes this day excursion advantageous. Comfortable attire, supportive walking shoes and a rain jacket in case of precipitation during the ascent are all you’ll need for this hike.

  • Arranged to have you picked up early in the morning with MyTrip2Tanzania guide from your accommodation and driven to the Marangu Gate (1860m) of the Kilimanjaro National Park. It will take between one to three hours to get there, depending on whether you’re going to Moshi or Arusha. After completing the required gate registration, you can start your trek and soon find yourself walking through the thick Kilimanjaro rainforest.
  • Alongside the impressive vegetation, you will have the chance to catch a glimpse of black and white Colobus monkeys, blue monkeys, and various bird species. Our knowledgeable mountain guide will inform you about Kilimanjaro and will explain the different species of plants and animals you will see. You will also meet mountain climbers descending from the top, and perhaps some of them will tell you of their experiences and you can start to dream about a climb of your own!
  • After a 3-hour hike, you will reach Mandara Hut (2700m), where you will have a well-earned rest and lunch. Your guide will then take you on a short hike (15 minutes walking distance) to the Maundi Crater, where you can enjoy wonderful views of Mount Kilimanjaro, Northern Tanzania, and Kenya. Once you have thoroughly enjoyed the views, you will return to the Marangu Gate (2-3 hours walking distance), where your vehicle will be waiting for your transfer back to your hotel.
  • You can savour the day’s recollections and the sunset on the way back.
