MOUNT MERU ADVENTURE Ref SVMM4 Mount Meru Trek

Mount Meru Trekking


MOUNT MERU TREKKING (4566m) is a second highest mountain in Tanzania, Is also an extinct Volcano. Mt Meru is treated by most professional mountain trekkers as an acclimatization trip before an attempt on Mt Kilimanjaro the highest free Standing in the World. It is also steeper than Mt Kilimanjaro but there is no problem with altitude sickness, compared to Mt Kilimanjaro. The mountain's vegetation zones are similar to Mt Kilimanjaro's through the high altitude glaciers and ice fields are absent. Evergreen forest begins at around 1800m moist, cool and thick at first, them thinning as your rise. The higher forest including giant bamboo, offers an ideal habitat for small duiker antelopes and primates, notably blue monkeys and black-and-white colobus monkeys, which are often seen by climbers. The Meru forest disappears at around 2900m, giving way to floral meadows where you might spot buffalo, giraffe or warthong, followed by a zone of giant lobelia and groundsel, and finally above the last of the trees at 3400m bleak alpine desert where the only sounds, apart from your breathing are the wind and the cries of white-necked ravens.
