We’ll take a short drive to the Momella Gate in Arusha National Park, where your adventure truly begins.

The Adventure Begins: From Momella Gate to Miriakamba Hut

From Momella Gate, the trek starts with a scenic route through the lush grasslands and dense forest. Keep your eyes peeled for the diverse wildlife that calls this area home – you might spot giraffes, buffaloes, and a variety of birds. The trek is accompanied by a cheerful park ranger who ensures your safety and shares fascinating insights about the flora and fauna.

Our path ascends gently but continuously, guiding you through the captivating montane forest. After approximately 5-7 hours of trekking, we reach Miriakamba Hut, situated at an elevation of 2,514 meters. Here, you’ll be treated to a stunning sunset over the Great Rift Valley while enjoying a hearty meal prepared by our talented chefs.

Overnight Stay: Miriakamba Hut

The cozy Miriakamba Hut offers a comfortable resting place, providing you with much-needed rest for the exciting days ahead. As you unwind, take a moment to reflect on the first leg of your journey and marvel at the star-filled sky above.

After a nourishing breakfast, we set off for Saddle Hut. Today’s trek takes us through magical montane forests and moorlands. The path is more challenging, but our encouraging guides at Lyimo Expeditions are there to support you every step of the way.

During the climb, you’ll encounter the Elephant Ridge, a captivating spot offering panoramic views of the stunning landscape. Take a moment to soak in the views and capture some photographs before continuing your ascent.

The final leg of your journey begins in the early hours of the morning, around midnight. Equipped with headlamps and led by our experienced guides, you’ll embark on the challenging ascent to the summit. The trail winds through rocky terrain, and as you ascend, the excitement builds.

The Grand Finale: Reaching Socialist Peak

After approximately 5-7 hours of strenuous climbing, you’ll reach the summit of Mount Meru – Socialist Peak (4,566 meters)! As you stand atop this majestic peak, the sun rises, casting golden hues across the horizon. The breathtaking views of Kilimanjaro, the Crater, and the surrounding plains make every step worth the effort.

Celebration and Descent: Return to Saddle Hut and Miriakamba Hut

After soaking in the triumph of your summit, we begin the descent back to Saddle Hut for a well-deserved breakfast. Following a short rest, we then continue our descent to Miriakamba Hut, retracing our steps through the diverse landscapes.
