At the gate you will clear your trekking permits, meet up with your porters, guide, cook and game ranger, and start climbing. You will pass open grassland which will give you a good opportunity to see buffaloes, warthogs and other grazers. We will cross the Ngare Nanyuki River and continue climbing through mountain forest. There you will have the chance to see varieties of birds and black and white colobus monkeys. Finally we will reach Miriakamba Hut where we will spend our night.

There you can see the crater. After 3 to 5 hours climbing you will reach Saddle Hut where you will have lunch. In the afternoon you will have time to go for an acclimatization hike to Little Meru (3794 m) for superb views of Mount Kilimanjaro over 80 km away before sunset.
