Arusha City To Mount Meru

Mount Meru Climbing Day Trip is an amazing one-day trekking adventure to the foothills of Mount Meru, located inside Arusha National Park in Tanzania. Our 1 Day Mt Meru forest trek/ hike is designed for guests who have limited time and who are not interested in reaching the summit of the second-highest mountain in Tanzania.

You will soaking in the local culture by brushing shoulders with the many local people living up the side of the mountain, while viewing amazing greenery and animals of all kinds. Walk through the forest of the second-largest Mountain in Tanzania. Mount Meru has more than 10 different day trekking routes around the lower forest which last from 3 to 8 hours each.

After breakfast depart from your hotel while having a briefing about the day hike by our guide. We start hiking. You will follow the tropical trails under the banana canopy, while be listening to some thrilling legendary stories about Meru people from your guide. The majority of the hike is more like walking up a steep hill past numerous villages and people’s farms.

While walking up the mountain, you will explore the beauty of the forest’s flora and fauna – rich birdlife, beautiful butterflies, monkeys, forest antelopes, and a number of medicinal plants – enjoying at the same time spectacular views of the lower areas of Arusha.

Hiking Mount Meru is bound to make you work up an appetite! We stop for lunch in a relaxing environment full of mountainous flowers. We continue hiking for another hour to reach the magnificent gigantic Meru Fall at an altitude of 2200 meters. You can take a dip in the cold, refreshing water for the waterfalls.

After taking a few moments of relaxation in the fall, you will start heading back and transferred to Arusha.
