Mt Longonot is a dormant volcano that rises 9,000 feet above sea level, situated in the great East African Rift Valley. The views from the top are breathtaking and include the expanse of Lake Naivasha, the eastern and western walls of the Rift Valley, the distant peak of Mt Suswa, and the steam rising from the earth's interior in Hell's Gate. From the summit you look down into the mysterious, circular crater.
It's a stiff, 10km climb from the base to the summit and back. Depending on your age and fitness it takes 4 to 7 hours. The magic of the climb is supplied by the 90 former street boys from the Sunshine Centre who climb with you, cheer you on, and are there to give you a helping hand on the way down!
