Tour overview

3 Days Mount Meru Climb Itinerary

Mount Meru is Africa’s fifth highest peak, situated in Tanzania. It’s a fantastic mountain to climb, with stunning scenery and views of Mount Kilimanjaro. In comparison to Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya, the mountain is unspoiled and less congested.

The mountain is situated within Arusha National Park. Walkers can see some of the birds and animals that live in the area because of its prime location. For those who are physically fit, many climbers choose a 3-day Mount Meru climb. The path to the summit is very steep, passing through parkland, montane forest, a giant heather region, and moorland, as well as crossing streams. A narrow, barren ridge leads to the top, which offers spectacular views of the Ash Cone, which lies thousands of feet below in the crater.

Day 1: Momela Gate - Miriakamba Huts

You'll be picked up from your Arusha hotel and driven to Arusha National Park's Momella Gate, where you'll complete the necessary pre-climb paperwork.

In the company of an armed ranger, today's hike takes you through the park's open grasslands. You'll have a good chance of seeing elephants, giraffes, buffalo, monkeys, and other animals during the day since you're within a national park.

You'll start climbing into the rainforest in the afternoon and stay in the Miriakamba huts for the night.

Day 2: Miriakamba Huts - Saddle Huts

Today, you'll leave the lush rainforest and enter the more arid heath region, which is peppered with giant clumps of heather and other moorland scrubs. Hiking along Mount Meru Crater's ridge provides spectacular views of the crater and the Ash Tray.

Those with a little extra energy can climb to the summit of Little Mount Meru for a panoramic view of Arusha and the surrounding area.

Day 3: Saddle Huts - Socialist Point - Arusha

Today, you'll have to get up early. In reality, it was about 1:00 a.m. The trail to the summit of Mt. Meru is steep, and it passes through volcanic terrain through Rhino Point and Cobra Point before arriving at Socialist Point.

Before beginning your descent back to the Momella Entrance, you'll be treated to a breathtaking sunset over Arusha and the surrounding landscape. At the end of your adventure, our driver will meet you and transport you to your hotel in Arusha.
