Marangu Route (Mountain Hut Accommodation).
The Marangu Route is used by almost 50% of all trekkers ascending Uhuru Peak and is the only route to offer comfortable mountain -huts with solar powered lighting, warm running water and light refreshments. Although the trail can be crowded in peak seasons, the views that are afforded are beautiful and each day of trekking takes you through a different micro-climate, offering considerable interest to the trek.
The real highlight is the walk from Gilman’s point along the crater rim to Uhuru Peak, passing close to the spectacular glaciers and ice cliffs that still occupy most of the summit area. The views on clear morning are absolutely magnificent. The Rify Valley, Mt.Meru, and the Masai Steppers stand out from the plains almost three vertical miles below as the sun rises behind Mawenzi. We also add an extra day to the standard five days itinerary to ensure maximum acclimatization and give ourselves the best possible chance to enjoying the magnificent scenery. National Park statistics indicate that the chance of reaching the summit increases by at least 20% if an extra day is spent acclimatize. The extra day is used to make an interesting excursion towards the jagged peaks of Mawenzi.
