Mount Meru Climbing Trekking Trip Tanzania: Mt. Meru is located in the heart of Arusha National Park and it is 50 miles west of Mount. Kilimanjaro. Mt. Meru is a massive volcano reaching 14,980 feet (4,565 meters).
This trek serves as an ideal warm up for Mount Kilimanjaro due to its altitude acclimatization and hiking distances. This trek is also geared towards hikers that prefer less crowds and a challenging ascent.
Because Mount Meru is located in Arusha National Park, hikers must climb with an armed ranger due to the wide range of wildlife living on the mountain. On the lower slopes of the mountain, hikers are more likely to see elephants, giraffes and buffalo!
As hikers continue their ascents, the trail follows the north rim of the volcano’s crater along a dramatic ridge line. Throughout the climb, hikers sleep in designated huts along the trail.
