6 Days Oldoinyo Lengai
Described by scientists as a geochemical sanctuary, protected by UNESCO and recently named Geopark Ngorongoro-Lengai. It is a perfect volcanic cone that rises above the Rift Valley to a height of 2,890 m.
The Oldoinyo Lengai is a demanding ascent, because you touch the top in a day. Its steep slope makes it a challenge to raise and lower it.
The Oldoinyo Lengai is the only active volcano on the planet that erupts carbonate lava, which causes the lava to have a temperature lower than normal, approximately 500 ° C.
The best time to climb the mountain is at night when temperatures are lower, which is why we are forced to start the ascent at almost midnight, which also makes it a unique show.
This trekking in Tanzania is unique and allows the possibility of an extension of safari game drive to Serengeti, Crater of Ngorongoro, Tarangire and Lake Manyara.
