Extreme Hiking / Hiking in Mount Longonot, Lake Naivasha, Central Province Kenya

2886m (9468ft)
8-9 km (5-5.6mi)
Mt. Longonot is located in the South East of Lake Naivasha and at about 90 km/60 mi from Nairobi City. It stands at 2886 m/9468 ft with dormant volcanoes dominating the landscape. Mt. Longonot is lined with spectacular fissures and lava canyons. It is a strato-volcano with fairly steep slopes covered with volcanic ash.

One can navigate the mountain in two ways, either by going to the top and coming back down, or get to the top and then go round the crater which is 7.2 km/4.5 mi long. The hike is normally not an easy one and can be achieved by people with considerable fitness.

The whole journey is between 8-9 km/5-5.6 mi but very steep and would take almost 5 hours to accomplish a round trip. Apart from hosting a variety of wildlife at the mountain, the crater  floor is covered with small trees and steam vents can be found spaced between the crater walls.

Make sure you have good fitting shoes due to the steep slopes and one needs to be careful not to slip or twist an ankle.
