Climbing Oldonyolengai | 3days Trekking: OlDoinyoLengai is referred to by the Maasai individuals as the “Mountain of God”, OlDoinyoLengai is absolutely dynamite. Rising gloriously from the Great Rift Valley floor to the tallness of 2890m, OlDoinyoLengai is the main dynamic fountain of liquid magma on the planet that ejects carbonatite magma. This sort of magma is remarkable in light of the fact that temperatures of these magmas are just around 500°C, about a large portion of the temperature of typical basalt magmas, and its magma streams with a consistency nearly as liquid as water.
Portrayed by others as an experimentally valuable, geochemical place of worship, Oldoinyolengai’s is a significant physically requesting ascension. Its precarious incline makes it a test to scale just as to move down and the day time heat is unendurable. The best time to ascend the mountain is during the evening when the temperatures are lower. This enables the climber to observe the stunning dawn at the summit and return before the scorching warmth kicks in.
It’s known as 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. It’s the element of the volcanic system of the East African Rift, it distinctively produces natro carbonatite lava.
