MOUNT MERU CLIMBING; 📷@blondeforadventure

Mt. Meru is located in the heart of Arusha National Park and it is 50 miles west of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Mt. Meru is a massive volcano reaching 14,980 feet (4,565 meters). This trek serves as an ideal warm up for Mt. Kilimanjaro due to its altitude acclimatization and hiking distances. This trek is also geared towards hikers that prefer less crowds and a challenging ascent.

Because Mt. Meru is located in Arusha National Park, hikers must climb with an armed ranger due to the wide range of wildlife living on the mountain. On the lower slopes of the mountain, hikers are more likely to see elephants, giraffes, and buffalo! As hikers continue their ascents, the trail follows the north rim of the volcano’s crater along a dramatic ridge line. Throughout the climb, hikers sleep in designated huts along the trail. Hikers reach the summit as the sun is rising and they will have spectacular views of Mt. Kilimanjaro and of the Mt. Meru Crater.

Mt Meru (4,562m/14,968ft), a dormant stratovolcano, towers over the town of Arusha in Tanzania. It lost most of its bulk in a huge eruption 8,000 yrs ago. The most recent minor eruption was in 1910. It is the second highest mountain in Tanzania after Mt Kilimanjaro. This time of the year the sky is very cloudy and the mountain is quite hard to see. The sky had just cleared up for just a few mins when we were driving and we stopped the car and took this picture. #tanzania #mtmeru #mountains

Stunning #hsinbyume #pagoda. It rises in seven curved whitewashed terraces representing the seven mountain ranges around #mtmeru, the mountain at the center of the Buddhist universe.

Every day is an adventure 🌿🐛 #mtmeru #waterfall #tanzania #arusha

On my way down after summitting #MtMeru last year ... one of the most technical climbs completed thus far and yes I felt as crap as I look on the video. A still photo captures a moment in time but at most times fails to show the real emotions. 90% of the time during a climb I question my sanity and curse myself through it but yet I still look for more Mountains to conquer. During climbs it is the time I connect, I reflect and I push myself to limits that I didn't think I had.. and what is learnt on the mountains is what I come to apply on the ground... nothing comes easy but with training, passion and perseverance results are always positive. @vinjari thank you for making me touch the clouds every time and @ezramusoke @zmageni looking forward in hearing your Meru story. #myTanzaniaisbeautiful
