Tour Details

Despite the availability of a wide range of other options, the Marangu Path is the oldest and most well-established trekking route on Mount Kilimanjaro, and it continues to be immensely popular.

This road offers trekkers a classic Kilimanjaro climbing experience, with sweeping views and a fantastic trekking journey all the way to Uhuru Peak’s summit. It does, however, have several distinguishing features that set it apart from the other routes, giving Marangu a distinct personality and atmosphere.

What to Expect

Kilimanjaro is attested to in numerous stories by the peoples who live in East Africa. The Chagga, who traditionally lived on the southern and eastern slopes of the mountain, tell how a man named Tone once provoked a god, Ruwa, to bring famine upon the land. The people became angry at Tone, forcing him to flee. Nobody wanted to protect him but a solitary dweller who had stones that turned miraculously into cattle. The dweller bid that Tone never open the stable of the cattle. When Tone did not heed the warning and the cattle escaped, Tone followed them, but the fleeing cattle threw up hills to run on, including Mawenzi and Kibo. Tone finally collapsed on Kibo, ending the pursuit

Another Chagga legend tells of ivory-filled graves of elephants on the mountain, and of a cow named Rayli that produces miraculous fat from her tail glands. If a man tries to steal such a gland but is too slow in his moves, Rayli will blast a powerful snort and blow the thief down onto the plain.
