   Marangu Route is considered to be the oldest route of all Kilimanjaro climbing routes with established accommodation facilities (huts), so when using this route you will sleep on those huts as opposed to tents used on other routes. They call it the coca cola route as climbers have the opportunity to buy coca on the huts along the way, this trail climber starts from the southern circuit of the mountain its a relatively easy route, however, the route uses few days and offers little chances for acclimatization and that affect the summit success rate. There are even showers (chilly) and a few flush bogs, which to some are literally a little bit of a luxurious on the mountain is also the most well-liked ascending route and is a properly established route on Kilimanjaro and is the right for these with no tenting expertise.
