MT. MERU TREKKING
Mount Meru is a dormant volcano about one and half million years old. One side exploded out about 8000 years ago as Meru’s caldera lake was transformed into super-heated steam by the inner eruption. One of the largest landslides of mud and rock ever measured worldwide took place, forming hillocks, valleys, and small lakes. The geologist estimate that before Mount Meru blew its top it was a tall, symmetrical volcanic spire almost as high as Mount Kilimanjaro.
