Mount Meru Climbing

Trekking Through Time On Kili’s Hidden Sibling!

Nestled in the shadow of the renowned Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru stands as a hidden gem, often overshadowed by its towering neighbor. However, this dormant (yet active - the last eruption was in 1910) volcano holds its own fascination. Situated within the scenic envelop of Arusha National Park, Mount Meru offers trekkers an exhilarating adventure. Not only does it serve as a fantastic warm-up for those eyeing Kilimanjaro, but it is also a journey worth taking upon in its own right.

With slopes that grant you sweeping panoramic views and an opportunity to witness thriving wildlife, Mount Meru waves over adventurers to explore its terrain. This ancient volcano, born around 500,000 years ago, bears the scars of its history. Its eastern side virtually exploded during the maiden eruption, resulting in its distinctive, rugged appearance. Beyond its impressive geology, Mount Meru boasts one of the deepest craters on the planet, plunging over 1,500 meters into the Earth. It's a trek not just through landscapes but also through time – a journey into Tanzania's geological and ecological wonders.
