Rhino Point


Altitude: 3800 mamsl (metres above mean sea level)

The Rhino point is the first point encountered on the third day(summit day) of the Mt. Meru climb. Above this point, no vegetation exists. It signals that you have reached what's left of mountain's crater rim(after the old one being blown off). From this point onwards the path goes along the top of ridge of volcanic ash, scree and rocks. On a clear day, the point offers great views of socialist peak, little Meru, Kilimanjaro as well as the inner volcanic cone.
