Mt Meru 2020 Expedition

One peak | Height: 4,562 m | Altitude Gain: 3,048 m

Mount Meru is a dormant stratovolcano located 70 kilometres (43 miles) west of Mount Kilimanjaro in the nation of Tanzania. At a height of 4,562 metres (14,968 ft), it is visible from Mt Kilimanjaro on a clear day. The #7SA2020 expedition will take the Momella route, starting on the eastern side of the mountain.

The three-day trek to reach the crater’s summit is a quieter, and some say more challenging alternative than the famous peak of nearby Mount Kilimanjaro and both the technical mountaineers and hikers will follow the same route. Along the lower slopes – ancient fig tree forests, crystal clear waters cascading from mountain streams, and a chance to spot colobus monkeys are among the attractions of this trek, along with incredible views of Kilimanjaro.
