MOUNT MERU CLIMB

Mount Meru is an active (but dormant) volcano located north of Arusha in Tanzania. At 4562 metres it is Tanzania's second highest mountain and the fourth highest mountain in Africa.


The mountain became well known mainly because it is only 70 km from Mount Kilimanjaro: Mt. Meru has become a popular "warm up" trek for Kilimanjaro climbers.


Mt. Meru is indeed the perfect preparation for a Nam Adventure.

You trek in a group with porters, cook and guides,

you climb through different vegetation zones over several days,

you start your summit attempt around midnight and reach the peak around sunrise,

and you then descend an awesome 2000 metres on the same day, very similar to your Kilimanjaro summit day.
