Mount Meru Trekking

Tour Starts & Ends: Arusha

Combination with e.g. Zanzibar or Safari possible!

Embark on an exhilarating 3-day journey to conquer the majestic Mount Meru, Tanzania’s second-highest peak and a hidden gem in the shadow of Kilimanjaro. Your ascent to the summit begins in the vibrant town of Arusha, where you’ll meet your experienced guides and fellow adventurers before setting off on your mountain adventure.

Day 1: Arusha to Miriakamba Hut

Your trek starts at Momella Gate, the entrance to Arusha National Park. From there, you will begin your ascent through lush rainforests teeming with wildlife, including colobus monkeys and colorful bird species. Your destination for the day is Miriakamba Hut, where you will spend the night, surrounded by breathtaking views of the park and the distant peaks of Kilimanjaro.

Day 2: Miriakamba Hut to Saddle Hut

Rise early and continue your journey through the montane forest, gradually ascending towards the alpine zone. Along the way, you will pass through open grasslands and rocky outcrops, with opportunities to spot wildlife such as buffalo and bushbuck. Reach Saddle Hut, your accommodation for the night, located at the base of the summit cone. Rest and recharge for the final push to the summit

Day 3: Summit Day and Descent

The summit bid begins before dawn, as you set out under the stars to conquer the summit of Mount Meru. Ascend steadily, navigating challenging terrain including rocky paths and steep slopes. As the sun rises, you will be rewarded with breathtaking panoramic views from the summit, including glimpses of Kilimanjaro in the distance. Take a moment to celebrate your achievement before beginning the descent back to Saddle Hut. After a rest and lunch, continue your descent to Momella Gate, where you will bid farewell to Mount Meru and return to Arusha, filled with a sense of accomplishment and memories to last a lifetime.
