In the Maasai language, Ol Doinyo Lengai means the “Mountain of God.” And that’s what this place feels like, as you ascend a rough trail to an active volcanic summit.
This volcano is still erupting and you continually witness steam shooting from the crater. The actual trek only takes one day and you can choose when to leave. It’s iconic to depart at 1am and make the summit for sunrise, but you may choose something more casual.
This is not an easy trek. But it’s an active volcano and there are many reasons why it’s known as the Mountain of God.
