Additional information

Mount Longonot is thought to have last erupted in the 1860s and has been dormant ever since. It’s caldera is 8 x 12 kilometers in size and once up on the rim you have fantastic views over the crater on one side and the Kenyan Rift Valley on the other side.

The name Longonot comes from the Maasai word Oloonong’ot, which means “mountains of many spurs or steep ridges”. And the volcano is just that, with a steep hike up the volcano, and a challenging walk around the crater with rocky paths that go up and down.
