Tour Description

On this day trip, you will hike on the Marangu Route up to Mandara Hut for lunch.

You will NOT reach the summit.

All short treks are offered on a private basis, and you can start on any day of the year. The short treks are geared for people who like to hike but reaching the summit isn't a "must do".

All trekking inside of the Tanzania National Park require the services of a certified Kilimanjaro guide, and the Marangu route is the only route where short treks are allowed.

Departure from Arusha or Moshi at 7 am, about 2 hours to Marangu village.

Once you arrive at the gate, and after completion of administrative formalities and meeting with porters and guides, begin the 4 to 5 hour walk to Mandara Hut.

The walk is at a leisurely pace through a dense and humid forest to the hut. If you feel up to it, walk to the nearby Maundi crater for a long view over the plains & Lake Jipe, and in the distance; the Pare and Usambara mountains.

Descend down to Marangu Gate. Then meet with the vehicle that will drop off at Moshi or Arusha.
