“It’s not the altitude, it’s the attitude.” Scott Fischer

Why This Mountain?

I have climbed Kilimanjaro 3 times and each time I have seen the shadow of Mt Meru taunting me. The exciting thing about this 3-4 day  trek in and out is that it is literally a walking safari and the government requires that you are escorted by an armed park ranger. Top that will a summit attempt and you have a two for one experience with possible wild animal sightings and the challenge of bagging a peak.

Mountain & Route Facts

Mt. Meru is a Stratovolcano. It’s the 2nd Highest Peak in Tanzania and the 5th Highest Peak in Africa.
