Summit Trek

If you have a good level of physical fitness and substantial experience of high-altitude trekking, why not take on a new challenge and set yourself the goal of climbing to the summit of Mount Meru, 4566 metres about sea level?

Meru is a challenging climb – even more so than Kilimanjaro, because of the steepness of its slopes.  Your efforts are rewarded, though, with beautiful landscapes and the breathtaking sight of Meru’s ash cone – a reminder that you’re standing on a dormant volcano!

Our highly trained and experienced guides put your safety first and monitor you carefully for any sign of altitude sickness, which can strike at random and affect even people in peak physical condition – so we can never guarantee that all of our trekkers will reach the summit.  However, our four-day program is carefully designed to help you acclimatize gradually to the altitude, and thus increase your chances of success.

There are dedicated huts available on the mountain for trekkers – Miriakamba Hut at 2,514 metres and Saddle Hut at 3,566 metres.  All treks are accompanied by an armed park ranger to protect climbers from elephants and buffalo on the lower slopes.  We  provide a highly trained and experienced guide, as well as porters to carry your baggage and a cook who will prepare hot meals during the expedition.
