Details: Mountain Meru is the second highest mountain in Tanzania, at 14979ft/4566m. And is over shadowed by Kilimanjaro, its famous neighbor. Not only is it a rewarding and picturesque trek in its own right, but also a very good acclimatization for a Kilimanjaro trek. A trek involves hiking through the forest and grassland on the mountain’s lower slopes, followed by a dramatic and exhilarating ridge-walk to the summit.
