Mount Meru Trekking Itinerary
Day 1 : (5-6 hours walking)
We begin our trek at the Momella Gate (located at 1,500 m altitude). The trail leads through open grassland showcasing scenic views of Arusha’s wildlife, then continues steadily ascending through lush forest. We’ll stop for lunch near or at the Fig Tree Arch, then continue through forest terrain which is inhabited by an abundance of birds and monkeys. By the late afternoon we’ll see our first clear views of Mt Meru’s towering edges and the Ash Cone. We’ll camp for the night at the Miriakamba Hut (located at 2,514 m altitude), nested in a cozy grassy plain.
