4 Days Mount Meru Climbing - Itinerary

Day 1: Airport Pick Up and Hotel Drop off
Precious Safaris welcomes you to Tanzania!
Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, one of our professional drivers will meet you and then transfer to your hotel in Arusha.
Your mountain guide will visit you at the hotel for the briefing regarding your trekking and gear checking.
Accommodation: Green Mountain Hotel
We can switch your accommodation according to your personal needs, preferences, and budget.

Day 2: Arusha to Miriakamba Hut
After breakfast, you will meet your crew at the hotel and drive to Arusha National Park. Check-in at the Ngongongare gate, then proceed to our starting point (Momella Gate). After a permit clearance, we start our expedition.
Unlike Kilimanjaro, every group must be escorted by an armed ranger to the camp. Expect to see different species of birds and animals like Buffalos, Elephants, Zebras, Giraffes, Monkeys, and Antelopes. We provide hot water for washing at the camp before dinner time. Welcome to Mount Meru!
Accommodation: Miriakamba Hut
Hiking Time: 4 hours
Hiking Distance: 7km

Day 3: Miriakamba Hut to Saddle Hut
The walk from Miriakamba Hut to the saddle below Little Meru is short but steep. We take our picnic lunch and continue hiking slowly along the ridge for a spectacular view of the Meru Crater and the impressive Ash Cone. After lunch at Saddle Hut, we will take a short hike of about 45 minutes to Little Meru (3,820 m). If we arrive at the top before sunset, we can get a superb view of Rhino’s Point, the Meru crater, and the peak of Kilimanjaro in the distance. We return to the camp for an early dinner and rest for the summit night.
Accommodation: Miriakamba Hut
Hiking Time: 5 hours
Hiking Distance: 6km

Day 4: Saddle Hut to Socialist Peak to Miriakamba Hut
Wake up around 11 pm and get prepared for the summit. Our summit hike starts around midnight after a light breakfast. Push slowly to Rhino Point 3800 m, then stop for a short break. Continue hiking through the crater ridge, where the trail turns narrow and hard. Whenever you feel physically exhausted, never give up until you reach the summit where you make your dreams come true. Our focus is to arrive at the summit of Meru at 4,566 m during sunrise. If the weather is good at the top, we can see Kilimanjaro Peak from a distance. Take many photos and descend back to Saddle Hut for breakfast.
After lunch, we descend to Miriakamba Hut for dinner and overnight
Accommodation: Miriakamba Hut

Day 5: Miriakamba Hut to Arusha
After our last breakfast on the mountain, we leave Miriakamba Hut, descending about 4 to 5 hours to Momella Gate. On arrival at the gate, we check out, collect certificates and drive back to your hotel in Arusha for a shower and celebrations. Descending time and distance from Miriakamba to the Momela gate: 4 hours, 10 kilometers
Accommodation: Green Mountain Hote

Day 6: Departure
