If you are wondering how much it costs to climb Mount Meru, then here is the breakdown of what to expect to pay on your trip. Please note, these prices are for climbers wishing to plan the whole climb by themselves, otherwise, contact us here for a free quote. The increase generally costs approximately 800-1200 USD per person, according to online sources! Traveling to Moshi and Arusha and bargaining (we’ve heard down to approximately 500 USD in the low seasons (with tip)) will get you a better deal. Still, if you want to save money, take public transportation and carry and prepare your own meals for the journey. This can keep your expenditures per person to around 20-30 USD, excluding park fees.

If you aren’t an East African citizen you have to expect to pay the following .
Entry fees per person per day:
