MOUNT MERU TREKKING

4 Days Mount Meru Climb

Adventure Overview

Although not as towering as Kilimanjaro, scaling Mount Meru presents its own set of challenges and rewards. The most popular route is the Momella Route, which typically takes around 3-4 days to complete. The trek begins in lush montane forest, home to a variety of flora and fauna, including colobus monkeys, buffaloes, and numerous bird species. As climbers ascend, the landscape transitions through grassland and heath zones, offering breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding savannah and distant peaks.

The final push to the summit involves a steep ascent over rocky terrain, culminating in the iconic Meru Peak. From the summit, adventurers are rewarded with awe-inspiring vistas of Kilimanjaro to the northeast and the sweeping plains of the Masai Steppe below.
