Mount Meru Waterfall – Lifetime Experience
Mount Meru is home to many incredible waterfalls, which pour down from the volcanic slopes. After a night of heavy rain, I made a day trip to explore one of the largest waterfalls at the base of Mount Meru, aptly named Mount Meru Waterfall. This adventure involves a steep motorbike drive up a rocky road followed by a jungle stairway that leads you down into a gorge. Once inside, you wade through the river, clambering over rocks until you meet the intense falls that spray with incredible force at its base. A remarkable sight and only a few kilometers from the town, the Mount Meru waterfall is one of the top things to do in Arusha.
Mount Meru in Arusha is the highest mountain in Tanzania after Mount Kilimanjaro. It is a dormant volcano located directly at Arusha National Park. Mount Meru is one of the most popular attractions in Arusha. You will visit the waterfalls of Mount Meru with an English-speaking guide. The soils on the slopes are very fertile and so you will pass many beautiful flowers and plants on the way to the waterfall. The people around Mount Meru make up a unique group of people and the guide will explain their traditions to you. The beautiful waterfall is located on the slopes of Mount Meru and you can reach the waterfall after a 45-minute hike through the untouched nature on the mountain. Then you will be rewarded with the refreshing water that comes from this beautiful mountain.
Keep in mind that there are some steep parts in this hike. So you have to be reasonably fit to take this walk. It can also be a bit slippery in the rainy season and we advise against taking this walk during that time.
