This place is nice and has a low entrance fee you have to be fit to explore the area specialy when heading to the water fall it's a 2 hours climb up to the water fall. I have never climbed the mountain itself.

Mt. Meru is a great option if you have less time or money than needed for Kili. With 4 day and 3 nights, the huts on the route make for a great trek experience. Bring warm clothes and ask you tour operator about any additional...More
