The advantage of Mount Meru compared to Mount Kilimanjaro is that it has been less trekked. This means that there are still large numbers of wild animals and rich vegetation. It is said that in the past Mount Meru was a larger volcano than Kilimanjaro. Because of erosion and explosion she became smaller. Though Kilimanjaro offers the opportunity to stand on the “Rooftop of Africa”, Mount Meru only offers you less sight and adventures compared to Kilimanjaro. Trekking Mount Meru is entirely worth a doing.
