LAKE NATRON / MOUNT LENGAI – Trek

The “Mountain of God” (2878m) is a sacred place for the Maasai. The sense of its deity can be felt at the summit, as one looks down at the two craters. One of the craters is still active and last erupted in 1983. At around midnight, you leave for a trek accompanied by Maasaï warriors, until the end of the morning.
