Ol’Doinyo Lengai is the “Mountain of God” for the Massai. On its top the god of the tribe has its home. This beautiful stratovolcano lies on the Rift Valley, a cliff-like scrap running from Djibouti to Mozambique. Ol’Doinyo Lengai is one of the most active volcanoes of this fault – and moreover, he is the only active volcano of the world with carbonated lava.
The volcano is rarely visited, because you need two days from the next airport to reach him. Maybe one or two groups of tourists/scientists climb it a day.
The climb is not that hard – always about 45° slopes – near the top you have to use your hands because of ash and lava channels
