Mt Meru

Mt Meru

Mt. Meru is often overlooked as many people aim for Kilimanjaro. However, as a pre Kilimanjaro acclimatization trip, or those that are looking to add another beautiful high altitude peak to their portfolio of peaks, it comes very highly recommended! This prime location gives walkers the opportunity to spot some of the birds and wildlife that inhabit the area. The route to the summit passes over streams, through parkland, montane forest, a giant heather zone and moorland. The summit is reached by a narrow, barren ridge, which provides stunning views of the Ash Cone lying several thousand feet below in the crater. Weather permitting, Kilimanjaro can be seen in the West. There are two huts available to climbers on the mountain.
