Mount Meru in Tanzania is one of Africa’s most beautiful volcanoes, and it is the second highest mountain in Tanzania at 4,5685m
The mountain is located within Arusha National Park, Tanzania’s gem. This prime location gives climbers the opportunity to spot some of the birds and wildlife that inhabit the area. The ascend is quite steep, the route to the summit passes over streams, through parkland, Montana forest, a giant heather zone and moorland. The summit is reached by a narrow, barren ridge, which provides stunning views of the Ash Cone lying several thousand feet below in the crater.
