4 Days and 3 Nights Mount Meru Climbing
Mount Meru is the second highest mountain in Tanzania standing 4,566 meters (14,979 feet) high. It is overshadowed by Mount Kilimanjaro, its famous neighbor, and frequently overlooked by visitors.
But Mt. Meru is a spectacular mountain. A trek here involves beautiful hiking through the grassland and forest on the mountain's lower slopes, followed by a dramatic and exhilarating ridge walk to the summit.
Day 1: Arrival in Arusha, Tanzania
On arrival you are personally met by one of our representatives and transferred to Arusha to a well-appointed lodge. In the afternoon there is a full briefing with the climb manager and your guide. Overnight at Outpost Lodge BB.
Day 2: Arusha-Miriakamba Hut
In the morning we are collected from your lodge and transfer to Arusha National Park. At the Momella gate we finish registration formalities before setting off with your guide and armed ranger - there is abundant wildlife in the forests! The forest section is especially scenic with strangler figs and the possibility of seeing buffalo grazing in one of the clearings. In the late afternoon we reach a viewpoint before heading onto Miriakamba Hut for dinner. Overnight at Miriakamba Hut.
Day 3: Miriakamba Hut-Saddle Hut
We set off from Miriakamba, initially still in the forest zone, but in a few hours as we reach Saddle Hut for lunch in the alpine desert zone. In the afternoon a walk to the summit of Little Meru can be taken for stunning views before heading back to Saddle Hut for dinner. Overnight at Saddle Hut.
Day 4:Miriakamba Hut
We rise early, and our hard work is rewarded at dawn as the sun rises to the east. Kilimanjaro is normally clearly seen from here and the sheer cliffs of the crater fall dramatically 1,000 feet or more.
