Mount Meru is a dormant stratovolcano located in Arusha National Park, 70 kilometers (43 miles) west of Mount Kilimanjaro in southern Tanzania. It is the second-highest mountain in Tanzania and the fifth-highest mountain in all of Africa, rising to a height of 4566 meters. Focus East Africa Tours has created this 1-day Mount Meru climb and walk packages In order to cater to visitors with limited time and little interest in climbing the second-highest peak in Tanzania.

Arusha town is located on the mountain’s slope and may be reached after roughly 12 hours of climbing from Tengeru Cultural Center.
