7 Days Kilimanjaro Climbing – Marangu route

$1400

Overview:
Mount Kilimanjaro Climb through Marangu Route is the easiest and most popular route to the summit, the Marangu Route is used by almost 50% of all climbers and uses comfortable mountain huts with solar power light and it is also suitable for those adventure tourists who don’t have much experiences climbing the mountains, therefore classified as a moderate trek rather than a climb.
