Mt. Ol Doinyo Lengai - “the mountain of God” - is an active volcano which is located in the Gregory Rift Valley, close to the alkaline Lake Natron. A trekking to the peak of Mt. Ol Doinyo Lengai takes 6 to 10 hours, depending on the level of fitness and experience in hiking.

The trekking to Mt. Ol Doinyo Lengai can be combined with a visit to Lake Natron – where thousands of flamingos can be seen. If you have time and fancy a swim in the volcan purified water, then Ngaresero waterfall is definitely for you.
