Mandara Hut is the first hut in along the Marangu Route (“Coca-Cola Route”).

There we complete the required paperwork and head into the incredible Marangu forest, with its thick moss, lichens and endless display of abundant plant life. Enjoy walking in the Montane forest where Mandara Hut is situated on the forest belt border just below the Maundi Crater. Walking in the montane forest and shortly in the heath and moorland vegetation with beautiful endemic flora to Maundi Crater you will enjoy the breath taking view of magnificent Mt. Kilimanjaro,after enjoying lunch it’s a time to head back down to the park gate and off to our hotel for a hot shower.
