From 8th till 11th September 2016
Day 1: Momella Gate (1500m) to Miriakamba Hut (2500m)
Starting at 11am after getting all the permits at Momella gate and wait for the rangers to organise the groups. 5-6h quite hike via the long route to Miriakamba (there is a short one which we followed on the way down) with changing landscape and amazing views over Mt. Meru and, especially, Kilimanjaro.
Day 2: Miriakamba Hut (2500m) to Saddle Hut (3500m) + round hike to Little Meru (3800m).
Short (though steep) hike, reaching Saddle Hut for lunch. On the afternoon we hiked to Little Meru (2h round trip) for more Meru and Kilimanjaro views.
Day 3: Saddle Hut (3500m) to Mount Meru (4566m) and down to Miriakamba Hut (2500m)
This is the HARD day: waking-up at 12am and start hiking at 1am in order to reach the summit at 6am just for the sunrise with Kilimajaro views. Back down to Saddle Hut for lunch and down to Miriakamba Hut for dinner and overnight. Take care of your knees and toes.
Day 4: Miriakamba hut (2500m) to Momella Gate (1500m)
Easy way done via the short route (not the same as the one followed the first day).
