On the lower slope of the main cone are several secondary slag cones and craters. There are lakes ringed with lava on the eastern and southern slopes. Mount Meru last erupted in 1910. Shrub savanna and savanna forests grow on slopes with elevations up to 1,100 m; higher are secondary forests and plantations of tropical crops.
