I had a great time along the Marangu route. It was very easy until Kibo! 11.15pm is not a comfortable time to hike up the steep zigzag up to gillmans point! By the time I got up there, the students that attempted Uhuru Peak had left, so i couldnt attempt it! 18 out of 20 made it to gillmans and 5 out of the 18 made it to Uhuru! Its a lovely experience if you get a chance take it! THe route has beautiful sceneries, and at night from horombo hut, kibo hut and on the way to gillmans you can see the beautiful lights of the towns of Moshi and Arusha. remember to take your warm sleeping bag and your Diamox! a word of advice "Pole Pole" kiswahili for slowly slowly! Remember to take your time.
