the view of the mountain

Mt Meru In Tanzania is the fifth highest mountain in the Africa and the second highest in Tanzania. It is 4566m, a massive volcanic blast blew away the entire eastern flank of the mountain and left it with the characteristic and distinctive appearance it has today. Climbing Mt Meru passes through many different vegetation zones.From dry forest of the lower region that gives way to a dense mountain rain forest, which then turns into a scrub land.

Towards the top of the mountain, the vegetation consists of heath and moorland and then finally replaced by the stunning baron alpine deserts. As the flora changes the wildlife does so too, which is diverse and equally impressive. The mountain is often used as a warm-up climb in preparation for the Kilimanjaro. However, the technical requirements are greater on Mount Meru than on the Kilimanjaro Routes.During the ascent, you will regularly come across large game such as elephants, buffalos you may also come across leopards.
