Climbing Mount Meru 1 day itinerary Cost with Nike Tours. Our 1 day Meru hike package is designed for guest who have limited time and have no interests of reaching the summit of the second highest Mountain in Tanzania. You will get luck to learn about people living in the up-side of the mountain while viewing the breathe taking greenery and some animals. It starts from Tengeru Cultural Center 12km's from Arusha town in the slopes of the mountain. Mount Meru 1 day climbing last for seven hours you will cover 18kms going up and down.
Best hiking and camping on the slopes or visiting the ash cone in the lower crater or walking safaris are activities that I can warmly recommend. You will be amazed by the amount of wildlife you can find on this mountain, the vegetation is stunning on the way, and meru simply isn't as overrun as Kilimanjaro is. (For people who are doing walking safaris on the lower slopes or in other areas of Arusha National Park there are several campgrounds. And for those wanting to do a safari in style there are a couple of very comfortable lodges just outside Arusha National Park.
