Trekking up Mount Meru!

What goes up must come down!

The views from the mountain were absolutely stunning. Me and Anni chose to visit mount meru waterfalls on another weekend we had free. To get to them we had to climb an area of mount meru, even though it felt like we had climbed the full mountain! Many people lived along the mountain and we saw these cheeky children who loved the camera :)

Women walked up and down with their supplies on their head. They made it look so easy walking up and down, especially when we was both struggling to balance on the rocks and dusty ground.

The mountain had a variety of terrain, these tree's where in an area at one part which was flat towards the top where we was walking. It was like a forest with tall tree's. Many had been planted rather than grew there naturally. On the other hand, below is a tree which has grown naturally. It stood alongside the hill in open space, and was extremely tall. But made beautiful imagery.

On the way up, there was alot of overcast, so it wasn't till the mid-afternoon the sun came out and it was very hot. It was a good job we was going down at this point or I think we might of passed out. I thoroughly enjoyed the walking, it was such a beautiful day!

This is the view of Arusha from park way up the mountain side on our trek. You could see for miles. It was great to see how far we had walked. We tried to make out our daily walk to place from a distance.
