Climbing And Trekking

Overview

For many mountaineering is a sport, a hobby or a profession of walking, hiking, backpacking and climbing mountains.

Various parks of Tanzania offer many hiking options for the enthusiastic explorer. The most frequent expeditions are obviously to Mt. Kilimanjaro, Ol Donyo Lengai and Mt. Meru. It is recommended to take things slowly and allow your body to acclimatize especially when climbing at higher altitudes.

The mountains of Tanzania vary in height, location, climate etc. Kilimanjaro, being the highest mountain in Africa has attracted the attention of many climbers from around the globe. Then Mount Meru (4566m.) and Ol Donyo Lengai (active volcano) are also popular among climbers. Every mountain has its own uniqueness and own beauty.

Every mountain is unique and different from each other, so this makes it important to be well familiar before deciding which one to climb. In Tanzania, most climbers opt for Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru. Mt Kilimanjaro, famously known as the “Roof of Africa”, stands almost 6000 meters above sea level and a wonderful mountain to explore the unique flora and fauna of the untouched rainforests. So if you want to experience the wonders of the beautiful mountain, then trekking is the best way. Meru is the fifth highest peak of Africa with marvellous views of Mt. Kilimanjaro and the Momela Lakes from the summit. The challenging ascent to the crater of Ol Donyo Lengai passes through some incredible scenery with panoramic views of the Rift Valley. The hike to the summit of Lengai is very sharp and a true challenge which is attempted only by hikers with a good level of fitness.
