03 DAYS/02 NIGHTS MOUNT OL DOINYO LENGAI TREKKING
Ol doinyo Lengai, “Mountain of God” (locally regarded as the sacred Mountain of God in the Maasai Language), is an active volcano located in the Gregory Rift, south of Lake Natron within the Arusha Region of Tanzania, Africa. Part of the volcanic system of the East African Rift, it uniquely produces natrocarbonatite lava a highly fluid lava that contains almost no silicon. During the day most of this lava flows look like fluid black oil. Some feel the lava flows resemble mud like-flows. Natrocarbonatite lava turns white when in contact with moisture. During rainy periods, the lava turns white almost immediately whilst this whitening takes longer during the dry periods.
