“Two Mountain’s, One Trip”!

Mt. Meru is located 50 Miles from Mt. Kilimanjaro in the center of Aursha National Park and at 14,980 ft (4,565 meters) it offers a (Highest) superior advantage to a successful Kilimanjaro Summit. Climbers that are looking to ascend Mt Kilimanjaro with ease or are seeking a far less crowded climb, option to climb Kilimanjaro’s sister mountain before hand. This is a fantastic way to accomplish both summits in nearly the same time it would take to climb the Northern Circuit route.  A Mt. Meru + (Rongai or Marangu) would put you only 1 day longer than the Northern Circuit route with the (Highest) probability of summiting Uhuru peak on Mt. Kilimanjaro.
