The most popular route up the mountain, the Marangu or Coca Cola Route is followed by most of the climbers. It has a well-defined path where obstacles have been modified to make them ‘climber friendly’. Despite the human traffic this is a very scenic route with good views of Mawenzi Peak and excellent prospects for viewing wildlife. Accommodation on this route is in purpose-built mountain huts providing adequate shelter and even bottled water, beer and soft drinks.
