Besides it being the oldest route on the mountain, the Marangu route is the only route with huts in every campsite as compared to tents in the other routes. Furthermore, it is a historical route for it is the route that was used for the first summit in 1889 by the German Hans Meyer and the first Kilimanjaro guide named Yohanes Lauwo. It was nicknamed coca cola route because except for the summit night it is not as challenging as the other routes. This is the only route where the ascent and descent route is shared, thus creating more traffic. It is also worth noting that sightings of the mountain from this route are not as spectacular as compared to the western routes.
