Mount Meru Tanzania Climbing Trek 3 Days 2 Nights Tour is the best for acclimatization prior to Mount Kilimanjaro climbing. The Mountain is the third highest peak in Africa and is the second highest mountain in Tanzania at 4,568 metres.

Mount Meru is a great preparation hike for climbing Kilimanjaro, or a spectacular trek for those not compelled to do Kilimanjaro. You will hike past wildlife, the landscape is spectacular, and sunrise on the summit has Kilimanjaro as the backdrop.

While it can be done in only 4 days, it is not an easy peak to summit. To reach the top (almost 15,000 feet), there is some scrambling on rocks in the dark and at high altitude.

You should be prepared for at least 10 hours of hiking on summit day. For an easier hike, you can climb just to Rhino Point for sunrise overlooking Kilimanjaro, and then descend.

Mt. Meru is in Arusha National Park. In Arusha National Park all hikers must be accompanied by an armed ranger. This ranger is employed directly by the national park. You will also have your own mountain guide, who is managing the crew and watching out for your safety.

The park ranger has the authority to make decisions such as trail choices, pace, etc. Arusha National Park may combine groups of people to hike with one park ranger, therefore, we cannot guarantee a completely private Meru trek.

Arusha National Park requires the hire of porters specific to Arusha National Park, who will be assigned once you arrive at the trail registration.

Starting through beautiful and lush montane forest, the path continues beyond the halfway point of Elephant Back Ridge and carries on uphill through the giant heather and other moorland vegetation to reach Saddle Hut for lunch.

In the afternoon, you can make the short climb to the nearby summit of Little Meru (3,820 Metre/ 12,533 Feet) for superb views. It takes about 1 hour to walk up and 30 minutes to walk down. The ascent is 1,056 meters/ 3,465 Feet.

Day 3: Hike to Summit then Down to Trail Head, Return to Moshi/ Arusha

(Saddle Hut to the summit to Momella Gate: 12 Hours to 14 Hours walking)
Summit day has an early start at around 1200AM. There is a 1 hour steep climb to Rhino Point (3,800 Metres/ 12,467 Feet), and then the path continues along a ridge of ash and rock to reach Cobra Point (4,350 Metres/ 14,272 Feet).

The summit of Socialist Peak (4,566 Metres) is an hour further on a steep path with magnificent views of Kilimanjaro. Depending on your speed, you can enjoy sunrise at Cobra Point or the summit.

The views are stunning: the cliffs of the Crater rim, the Ash Cone rising from the crater floor, Kilimanjaro floating on the morning clouds, and the Rift Valley.

The route back to Rhino Point in the sharp morning light along a narrow ridge between the sloping outer wall of the crater and the sheer cliffs of the inner wall is one of the most dramatic and exhilarating walks in Africa.

Brunch and a brief rest is taken at Saddle Hut before continuing the descent to Miriakamba Hut.
