Where to go trekking in Tanzania?
Mountaineering is a sport, hobby, or profession of walking, hiking, backpacking, and climbing mountains.
Without a doubt, Tanzania’s best-known mountain and also the highest mountain in Africa is Mt Kilimanjaro with its peak at 5,895 m.
The second mountain in Tanzania is Mt Meru 4566m which is located in the Arusha National Park and is only 80km away from Mt Kilimanjaro.
