Mount Meru Trekking

Tour Overview

Mount Meru is an incredible mountain located in Tanzania’s Arusha National Park. Mt. Merua is commonly recommended as a “Warm-up” trek before summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro because it is a good plan for elevation acclimatization. Regardless, the trek to Mount Meru is a compensating background. Mount Meru has stunning views and diverse vegetation, and it also allows us to observe natural life during your trek. Mount Meru is also less crowded than Mt. Kilimanjaro.

During your journey, you may encounter giraffes, wild oxen, elephants, gazelles, mandrills, colobus monkeys, and various types of feathered creatures. As a result, while trekking, you can enjoy a strolling safari. The entire edge walk on Mount Meru is a breath-taking climb that offers 360-degree views from the summit of Meru, as well as views of Mt. Kilimanjaro from Mount Meru’s pinnacle, which is an exciting backdrop.

The ascent continues through sub-montane forest, passing a massive Strangler Fig tree that cars can drive through! You continue through the less dense montane forest after lunch. Views of Meru, towering cliffs, and Ash Cone are spectacular. The Miriakamba Huts are located in a pleasant glade where you will be able to enjoy the spectacular views of the plains between Meru and Kilimanjaro.

The crater rim is a steep climb from the Miriakamba Huts. Then you take a steep path through the montane forest to reach the giant Ericas in the Moorland zone, which is located around the saddle between Little Meru and Meru. When you arrive at the Saddle Huts, lunch will be ready. Your afternoon is free to relax and take in the scenery, but energetic hikers can make the short climb to the summit of Little Meru (3,820 m/) for stunning views just before sunset.
