Mount Meru 4 Days
Mount meru 4 days, Mount meru is standing like a little Mount Kilimanjaro Brother; this is because this is a second mountain in Tanzania after Mt. Kilimanjaro, We highly recommend our clients to take 4 Days Climbing Mount Meru as you will have an extra day to acclimatize before a final day to push to the summit.
Day One: Arrival Day
Upon your arrival to Kilimanjaro International Airport you will meet up our guide who will pick up you and transfer you to Peace Hotel in Arusha for overnight and last minutes gears check
Day Two: Arusha to Miriakamba Hut.
After breakfast will drive to Arusha National Park which will take approximately two hours. The variety of flora and fauna in the park is simply enchanting. The infamous film Hartari starring Hollywood’s legendary John Wayne and Hardy Kruger was shot in the park. Once you have completed the necessary park formalities, we will begin the trek near the Ngarenanyuki River. Your first waypoint is the Miriakamba. You can expect to encounter buffaloes, waterbucks, giraffes, warthogs, zebras and gazelles. There is no need to travel in fear, an armed ranger and a professional mountain guide will accompany you throughout your journey. Your guide will assist you in identifying the birds that you see. There are elephants and leopards within the park but they tend to be more reserved in comparison to the other wildlife. We will stop for the day once we reach the Miriakamba Hut, where we will enjoy an appetizing dinner and spend the night.
Day Three: Miriakamba Hut to Saddle Hut.
After an energy dense breakfast is served at the camp, we will travel along the steep path to the Saddle Hut. You can trek to little Meru and return to the Saddle Hut for dinner. It is recommended that you try to fall asleep shortly after dinner as the journey to the summit begins at midnight.
Day Four: Saddle Hut to Miriakamba Hut.
The Mount Meru trekking excursion begins shortly after midnight. For the next five hours the light of your headlamp will guide you on the path. Ascending to the summit is the most difficult part of the trek. The high altitude makes climbing to the top an arduous task. Once you reach the peak we will give you an opportunity to snap some pictures and recollect yourself. The downward journey is absolutely mesmerizing because there are scenic views of the luscious mountains and vibrant landscapes. We have a leisurely lunch at the Saddle Hut but the journey is not over yet. We will walk for roughly two hours until we reach the Miriakamba Hut, where we will spend the night.
Day Five: Miriakamba Hut to Momela Gate.
We will enjoy a hearty breakfast at the camp and then we will commence the final part of the trek. The hike requires us to travel amid Meru’s cloud forest – which resembles an enchanted forest in a whimsical novel. The steep incline on the way to the Momela gate tends to be slippery, we urge you to step cautiously. Upon your arrival back to momela gate you will meet our drive guide and transfer back to Peace Hotel in Arusha which will be the end of your Mount Meru Tour Package.
