The Marangu Gate of Mount Kilimanjaro National Park

This is one of the entry points to the Kilimanjaro. It’s also the beginning of the Marangu trail. This gate is also used as an exit gate.

This gate is located in the south eastern side of the Kilimanjaro in the Marangu district. It is approximately about a two hours drive form the town of Moshi. Moshi is about 42 Kilometers from the Kilimanjaro International Airport.

Vegetation Zone

Most gates to the Kilimanjaro National Park are located at the base of the mountain and therefore they are all at the edge of the Montane forest zone vegetation of the mountain.

This area is characterized by a lot of trees that form a canopy at the top since it’s a tropical rain forest. This makes the place a bit cooler since the sun rays cannot hit directly.
