Moshi to Momella gate (1500m) onto Miriakamba Hut (2500m).
Departed from our hotel in the morning for Momella Gate of Arusha National Park (1,500 m). After park entrance formalities, we began our hike, assited by a park ranger. The track passed open grassland, providing an opportunity to see buffalo, warthogs, giraffe, zebra and other grazers. The trail continued as a steady climb through Montane forest. After lunch, the route continued through less dense forest, where there are
an abundance of birds and black and white Collobus monkeys. By mid-afternoon, we saw towering cliffs and the Ash Cone. We reached Miriakamba Hut (2,514 m), situated in an idyllic grassy glade, in time to enjoy the last of the afternoon sun and beautiful views over the surrounding plains towards Kilimanjaro. (4-6 hours walking). Night in a bunkhouse.Read more
