This is an often over looked attraction, it is within close distance to Lake Natron, where the pink flamingos gather. Although not the tallest of volcanoes it stands proud adjacent to an area of the Great Rift valley. I intend to go back and climb which I have been told takes around 6 hours, this is Tanzania only currently active... 更多

Ol Doinyo Lengai is a serious mountain and you should not underestimate the challenge of climbing it. It is not technically difficult but the majority of the climb is a scramble up a very steep (60 degree) slope consisting of loose volcanic rock and fine ash. It is also incredibly exposed, which can be mentally challenging, and you will likely... 更多
Most visitors climb this volcano are enjoy a mix of experiences - read the other reviews. For many, climbing is out of the question. There is an alternate - take a helicopter flight from nearby Arusha airport. If you are a keen photographer you will be rewarded with memorable photos. Whilst in the air you can request the pilot to... 更多
You start climbing at midnight because you need the coolness of the night to tackle such a steep slope. By the time you get to the top you are taking 2 steps up and 1 step back because it is loose ground. That last stretch is mentally challenging as you get a view down 2 1/2km if what looks almost... 更多
I climbed Lengai with my 15yr old daughter in April, 2016. It was the experience of a lifetime, and gave us a memory for always. Having done it, I am glad and will not do it again. The mountain is awesome, raw, untamed. It is super steep. If you are remotely afraid of heights, stay away. If you have vertigo,... 更多
This "Mountain of God" for the Maasai is a beautiful, almost 3000 m high mountain with an almost perfect conical form. It has been active recently and lies in an area with lots of other slepping craters. It can be climbed from Engaresero in a day.
Very difficult hike. Worth the adventure. Head lamps, duct taped pants to boots (or tight gaiters), food & tons of water, walking sticks, and hats are a MUST. Absolutely make sure that the guide goes at the pace you feel comfortable with. Stay at Michael Mantheakis Safari Tented Lodge for the best views of the volcano, the best service, the... 更多
We did the hike to the top of Ol Doinyo Lengai. We were three friends hiking with two guides. We started at midnight and reached the summit before sunrise. We are pretty fit and sporty so we had to wait around one hour before reaching the top as we were there too early. It is hard hike as it is... 更多
I hiked the Ol Doinyo Lengai Volcano as part of the Glasgow University Tanzania Expedition. The hike was gruelling to say the least - it took us 19 hours to reach the bus again once setting off. However, it was worth it for the immense views from the top, the fact we witnessed a small eruption at the top, and... 更多
