4 Days Mount Meru Trekking

Introduction

One of the most wonderful volcanoes of Africa, Mount Meru is also the second highest Tanzanian mountain at 4,5685, the 5th highest in Africa. Placed inside Arusha National Park, Mt Meru offers amblers the chance to some of the rarest birds & wildlife that populate the area. The climb is rather steep, the trail to the peak passes over parkland, streams, montane and moorland. The prak can be reached via a slender, desolate ridge, which offers incredible sights of Ash Cone resting many thousand feet beneath the crater. If weather permit, Kilimanjaro can be explored in the west. The most ideal time to ascend Mt Meru is amid October and February.
