Visit the Kilasia Waterfalls and experience stunning landscapes. Located in the beautiful countryside of Marangu surrounded by lush landscapes, you will find this hidden waterfall, Kilasia Water Falls. This is a beautiful, and a relatively simple walk through the tropical rainforest that grows on the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
The waterfalls are situated along the Kilimanjaro National Park, to the foothills of the Kilimanjaro Mountain. The source of the water comes directly from the glacier on top of Kilimanjaro. You will see splendid, green areas where the most fantastic trees and exotic plants grow. You will visit coffee and banana farms, and get a chance to practice how to harvest coffee, roasting the coffee beans up to pack it or drink it.
About 2hours drive from Arusha to Moshi town and 40-minute drive from Moshi town, from which you have a very nice view on Mt. Kilimanjaro (weather permitting).
At the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Kilasia Waterfall is one of the most popular and largest waterfalls in the area. A one hour hike, descending through the stunning green landscapes of Chagga (the largest tribe in Tanzania) land will bring you to this huge waterfall, here you will have the opportunity to stand underneath the waterfall, and have a well-deserved break for lunch in the beautiful valley. You can see different types of monkeys (black and white colobus monkeys), tropical birds and other animals. The duration of the trip is approximately six-seven hours.
After lunch, you will visit the Chagga Cave and attend the Chagga museum for the Chagga people history.
The word “Marangu” means a place with too many water streams. This is one of the most popular places in Tanzania.
