The Marangu Huts are the only places where you can buy soft drinks that is why the Marangu Route is called the Coca-Cola route. Because porters would have to carry the bottles up the mountain, tour companies seldom provide it on other routes. However, on special request, additional porters can be hired to carry your soft drinks. However, this is not suggested. Fruit drinks may or may not be provided, depending on your tour organizer.
