3 Days Mount Meru Trekking


Embarking on a captivating three-day journey, the Mount Meru climbing itinerary begins with an early departure from Arusha to the Momella Gate. This serves as the gateway to the ascent, where trekkers register, meet their guides and porters, and venture into the forest, encountering wildlife amidst the lush scenery. Day one concludes at Miriakamba Hut, providing a tranquil resting place. The following day involves a gradual ascent to Saddle Hut, nestled in the heather zone. After a period of rest and acclimatization, the climbers embark on the exhilarating midnight summit push, reaching Socialist Peak in time for a spectacular sunrise. The descent includes a brief stop at Saddle Hut before concluding at Momella Gate, where climbers sign out and receive their well-earned summit certificates. Essential tips for acclimatization, proper packing, the support of guides and porters, and maintaining physical fitness are emphasized throughout this challenging yet rewarding adventure.
