Mount Kilimanjaro took a lot out of me but after nine days on safari, it was time to pull on the hiking boots again. This time I was heading up Tanzania’s second-highest mountain, Mount Meru at an altitude of 4,566m. I was curious to see how I handled the altitude given the quick elevation gain but also with Kili under my belt from just two weeks ago. In the end, I only had a tiny headache on the way down from the summit and it was a successful climb. Meru really surprised me with its crater views while we hung out above the clouds looking out into the distance to Mount Kilimanjaro.
I wrote a huge guide about the climb including my daily journal and all of the photos, which you can read here: MOUNT MERU CLIMB IN TANZANIA
I’ll also add the photos from the climb here if you just want to see how the experience looked, climbing up Mount Meru.
