The second highest peak in Tanzania, Mt. Meru is a dormant volcano that lies nestled north of Arusha. Mt.Meru is a good place to prepare for the task of tackling Mount Kilimanjaro. A trek up Mt.Meru offers a taste of what can be expected at its bigger counterpart, but should not be underestimated. The walk around the rim of the mountain is one of the most spectacular walks in Africa.
