MOUNT MERU CLIMBING
Mt. Meru, Tanzania’s second highest mountain stands at 4,566m tall (14,979feet). It is located in Arusha National Park and offers some of the most spectacular scenery and selection of wildlife of any mountain in Tanzania. Mt. Meru is a challenging trek due to the steepness, but is a great way to acclimatize before attempting Mt. Kilimanjaro. Due to the wildlife on the lower slopes climbers are accompanied by an armed ranger. Mt. Meru has historical significance as it has been suggested that it was the resting place of Noah’s Ark when it came to rest after the biblical flood receded. Mt. Meru is a great trekking option for those who want to take on a climbing challenge and get the sense of being out in the wild, but are not quite ready to tackle Mt. Kilimanjaro.
