Oldonyo Lengai Mountain Climbing and Lake Natron

Summary.

Oldonyo Lengai Mountain Climbing and Lake Natron with Kilipeak Adventure, Mountain Lenkai (normally known as “Ol’doinyo Lengai”) rise about 2,100 meters above the East African Rift Valley floor to a height of approximately 2,880 m. The name Ol’doinyo Lenkai which means “Mountain of God” originates from the Maa language (the Maasai’s language) from the Ngorongoro area. The Maasai people conduct prayers to God “Enkai” or “Engai” whom the Maasai believe is the Creator of all things on this active volcanic mountain.

Ol’doinyo Lenkai is the only active volcanic mountain in the East African Rift Valley Region which attracts many geologists from all over the world who come for research. Scientifically, carbonated lava is dark brown upon extrusion, but reacts very rapidly and turns into moisture to hydrate, then to secondary alteration minerals that impart a white color to the rock. The Maasai believe that the “white rock” symbolizes the white beards of “Enkai”.
