Ngorongor Crater & Ol Doinyo Lengai 6 Days

ngorongoro crater treking

This mountain is the only active volcano in East Africa. Volcanic activity on the mountain has been observed from as far back as 1883, and it is still active today. Ol Doinyo Lengai reaches a height of approximately 9,442ft/2,861m.

Climbing the mountain requires 4-5 hours of moderate exertion to reach the summit. The ascent is quite difficult and challenging because the mountain is steep and loose and climbers are exposed to the hot sun as there is hardly any shade. The best time to climb the mountain is early in the morning, before the sun gets too hot. Once at the top you will see the strange and unique landscape of the crater. The landscape here is well worth the effort it takes to ascend. Herds of zebra and wildebeest can sometimes be seen on the trip.

A trip to the mountain can also encompass other nearby areas of interest like Lake Natron or Ngorongor Crater. Lake Natron is a breeding ground for flamingoes and other birds. There are several Maasai bomas (homesteads) which can be visited, and one can also visit the nearby Mount Gelai, which has geysers and a spectacular waterfall.
