Mount Meru

The second highest mountain in Tanzania (4.566m) is located in the Arusha National Park and offers a wonderful trip to the top. The route leads from grassland and lush forest to picturesque open spaces and along the exciting crater rim.

Don’t underestimate Mount Meru: its steep slope, steep abysses on the last climb and the altitude make the climb quite challenging. Because Mount Meru is part of Arusha National Park, you are joined by a park ranger.
