At 4562 metres it is Tanzania’s second highest mountain and the fourth highest mountain in Africa. The mountain became well known mainly because it is only 70 km from Mount Kilimanjaro: Mt. Meru has become a popular “warm up” trek for Kilimanjaro climbers. Mount Meru viewed from Mount Kilimanjaro.
This 3 day Mount Meru Trekking starts at the Momella gate (1500m) and ascends up to the summit (4567m) whereby you will be escorted by an armed ranger. On the way, you will pass through different zones such as montane forests, moorlands as well as alpine desert. You will also get a chance to see wild animals on the way like the zebras, antelopes, white colobus monkeys, giraffes as well as elephant and buffalo. The views are truly breathtaking.
