Der Ol doinyo Lengai ist ein faszinierender Berg. Der Aufstieg ist anstrengend, aber wenn man etwas Bergerfahrung hat und körperlich fit ist, durchaus machbar. ca. 1700 Höhenmeter sind auf ca. 5 km Entfernung zu überwinden.
Wir starteten ca. 2 Uhr und waren kurz vor Sonnenaufgang oben. Es war windig und ziemlich kalt. Oben wechselten sich Wolken und freier Blick ab. So hatten wir immer wieder einen schönen Blick in den Krater und auf das Umland.
Sehr empfehlenswert.

I decided to climb Ol Doinyo Lengai spontaneously as I found out it is the only active volcano ( I'm a volcano freak) and gives you opportunity to see the lava inside. I convinced my friend to go together so we traveled by his car ( we did not take 4 wheel which resulted in a broken exaust fixed with tape but local Masaii :D ). We found the tent to stay at Maasai Giraffe Eco Lodge which is a lovely camping spot with great owners.As we arrived, at campsite we found the Masai guide Peter with whom we were supposed to climb at night. We were SUPPOSED to, as once at night we reached the base, it was pouring rain and storm so there was no chance to climb in these conditions, we spent about hour waiting for the rain to stop nothing.... We came back at camping site tired and a little bit discouraged. We were plaanning to come back home next day but the guide convinced us to try to climb during the day. So we set off! My friend resigned after 20 mins though ( he was not that much into climbing it either). I stayed with a guide - it was quite hard from the beggining because of the heat but it was definitely doable during first two hours. After that the steeper part start. I acutally found out it is the hardest climb of Tanzania during the hike ( the guide traveled quite a lot in Africa and says its among two hardest climb he has ever done in his life). I was very much motivated to climb it but after 3 hours I was slowly getting discouraged, I was very tired ( not slept much night before) and my body was starting to feel weak. Guide Peter was very encouraging though and supportive. The worst part was 1 hours before the summit - it is the steepest part, I would never belive I could climb something like that but for me the most scary part was the descent - when I imagined that we will be descending at night I started to freak out, I started to cry asking the guide to come back. Peter is an amazing guide, instead of agreeing, he said " you're a strong girl, I knwo you can do it", he grabbed my hand and started to guide me through the steepest part of the climb. In tears I managed to reach the summit and I started to cry but this time from the happinness. The crater, the views, the sunset, the lava lake at night - was unforgettable but the most was the feeling of achieveing something so hard. I'll never forget that rewarding feeling which was worth all this effort.
Although Peter the guide was also descending it at night for the first time, descending at night was not a bad idea - as you don;t see the whole surface and how steep it is, you just focus on your next step which helps you to descend. I was never so exausted during my whole life but thanks I made it to the top I had power to go down.
I love hiking but I was totally unprepared for it and never did such a difficult climb but what turns out - climbing it is in your head, I heard so many stories that people in a great shape were turning back, it is really in your head and the support of your guide which helps you make it. I really recommend it as unforgettable experience but of course - please take it seriously. Bring a lot of water, some warm clothes for a top ( I was very lucky that Peter the guide brought me some gloves and hat) . I also recommend to go Pole Pole ( slowly) during the day we started to climb at 12 30 pm which is a little bit too late in my opinion and we were rushing a little bit for a sunset ( the climb up took us 6 hours and descent 5 hours). Climbing during the day is really not bad if you can stand some heat ( remember about sunscreen and the hat).
I loved it, despite the fact the guide saw all the faces of mine and I was so angry sometimes during it, it really influenced my personality somehow,.
"If you climb this mountain, you can do everything"
" Climbing Kilimanjaro is like a walk in the forest comparing to this one"

This is what I heard after the climb. It is a magical place and can turn out into a life-changing experience.

This volcano is changing its appearance constantly. As I was climbing already many volcanoes around the world, I arranged with a Maasai to climb the mountain. Around 23:00 we left from the Natron Lodge and started the hike at around midnight from 1,150m, this is the maximum you can access by 4WD.
Total ascent was about 5 hours, as we realized that we are too fast, we slept around an hour at about 2.000m to be at the rim at sunset. The climb is quite easy up to the half, but then gets steeper and steeper. Its great that you cannot see too much with the tiny lamps, you just proceed step by step over rocky and sharp edged lava until you reach a short traverse to the south and reach the rim (GPS 2.855m). When we came up we were in the middle of a cloud, bu some minutes later the view became clear and we could observe the crater (around 100m below) and a big "hornito", a big cone in the center of the crater which exhausted some sulfur gases.The views from the rim to the mountains in the West and into the rift valley with the low standing sun is very beautiful! After about an hour we left the rim and climbed back to the car, which took as about 4 hours, more than expected due to the sharp rocks and partly slippery formations. Be aware that you have to climb more than 1.700m up AND down, we met some local people stranded on the way and almost unable to return safely through steep terrain!

Cette région du pays Maasai vaut absolument le détour, même si le million de flamants nains qui nichent sur le lac Natron était absent cette année. Les paysages sont hallucinants, entre Islande pelée et savane de carte postale.

We hiked up after completing a 4 day mtb-race from Kili to Lake Natron. Starting around midnight we got to the summit well before sunrise. It is a very steep climb, but worth it. Really enjoyed it! Nice to see the views too when you head back down. Sunrise was pretty. Remember, you won't see much of a lava glow once the sun is up!

En allant au lac Natron, ce volcan est incontournable et montre encore des traces d'activités anciennes mais aussi plus récente.

We climbed Oldoinyo Lengai this July during our honeymoon. We're from Colorado so hiking mountains is what we love to do! Lengai is very steep and will take you about 6 hours to summit. However it is well worth the hike and the midnight start time! Do your homework beforehand and make sure you come prepared with a headlamp, jacket, gloves (highly recommend for the climb), and some comfy hiking boots. The hike down is honestly the hard part and takes the same amount of time as the hike up. You'll get back to your car around noon. Very happy we did this hike. It was something different than just going to Africa for the animals. Honestly the best part of our trip!
