Ol Donyo Lengai Mountain

Mountain Of God

Ol Doinyo Lengai Hiking

Mount Oldonyo Lengai, the “Mountain of God” in Maasai, stands as a geological marvel and a spiritual icon in Tanzania. An active stratovolcano, Lengai’s unique claim to fame lies in its rare natrocarbonatite lava, the only one of its kind in the world. The trek up this sacred mountain is a challenging endeavor, navigating rugged terrain and steep slopes, where the surrounding landscape is marked by sparse vegetation and volcanic ash. Adventurers who dare to conquer its peak are rewarded with awe-inspiring views stretching across the Great Rift Valley and Lake Natron, a saline lake tinged with vibrant hues, creating a surreal backdrop. Lengai’s mystique extends beyond its geological marvels; it holds a revered place in Maasai culture as a sacred site, embodying spiritual significance and serving as a pilgrimage destination. The ascent of Mount Oldonyo Lengai is not just an adventure; it’s a journey through geological wonders and cultural reverence that leaves an indelible mark on those who seek its summit.

The Mystery of Lake Natron

Lake Natron, a saline lake nestled amidst Tanzania’s striking landscapes, is a hauntingly beautiful natural wonder. Its otherworldly appearance, tinged with vibrant reds and oranges due to high concentrations of salt and minerals, creates an ethereal sight. This remote lake, often mistaken for a mirage in the arid expanse, hosts a unique ecosystem where flamingos flourish, drawn by the rich algae that thrive in its alkaline waters. The lake’s formidable environment, with its extreme alkalinity and temperatures that can reach scorching levels, presents an inhospitable setting for most life forms. Yet, it becomes a sanctuary for flamingos that wade through its shallows, casting an otherworldly aura against the backdrop of the surrounding desolation. Lake Natron, with its stark beauty and paradoxical allure, stands as a testament to nature’s ability to create a haven amidst harsh conditions.

well organised trip and affordable prices I loved my trip up Kilimanjaro withTravel Route. I was picked up at the airport by Emmanuel. The hotel I stayed at the day before the trek was nice and even had a pool which was good for relaxing before the climb. I went on the Machame route, which was great. It's beautiful and the climb was manageable. The guides were encouraging, helpful, cheerful and knowledgeable. The tents we stayed in on the climb were nice and we even had sleeping mats, which made for a comfortable sleep. The food on the climb was plentiful and better than I expected it to be. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend Travel Route to anyone thinking about about climbing Kilimanjaro.
