3 Days – Mt. Ol donyo Lengai Trekking


South of Lake Natron in the eastern rift valley of North Tanzania lays Mount Ol Doinyo Lengai. Locals believe it as the consecrated Mountain of God in the Maa Language. It is an active volcano. At 2878meters, Mt. Ol Doinyo Lengai is the main known volcano on the planet that occasionally emits natrocarbonatite magma, a profoundly fluid magma that contains practically no silicon. Natrocarbonatite magma is likewise a lot cooler than different magmas. During the day the greater part of this lava, streams look like liquid dark oil. Some vibe the magma streams take after mud like-streams. Natrocarbonatite magma turns white when in contact with dampness. During stormy periods, the magma turns white very quickly while this brightening takes longer during the dry period.

On the 3-day trekking of Mount Ol Doinyo Lengai with us will help you to have a view of the perspectives in the north from its summit. The day temperatures by the lake frequently surpass 40°C and a couple of creatures make due here with the flamingo making its home here as rearing grounds, settling on the salty surface on upraised hills. Mount Kilimanjaro command the view on the east and toward the west the forested ledges and slopes involving the western inclines of the Great African Rift Valley.

Toward the south stretches the Crater Highlands, Ngorongoro being one of the prime natural life protection zones in Africa.

The rising of Ol doinyo Lengai is requesting by virtue of the daytime heat, absence of water, steep and insecure inclines of debris and brittle rocks. An encouraging start is what we undertake and the best methodology is from the west where we can avoid the morning sun for some time.
