If you are looking for a place to enjoy smooth outdoor hiking activity, then mt longonot is the place to visit.
Mt longonot rises from the floor of the Great Rift Valley like a monolith forming an extinct volcanic mountain. A unique feature is the thick forest that lies within the crater of the mountain. The crater rim also provides great scenic views across the beautiful Rift Valley. Major wildlife attractions at Mount Longonot include buffaloes, elands, lion, leopard, bushbucks, common zebra, giraffe and Grant’s gazelles.
Mt Longonot is just less than 2780m (9100ft) above sea level with a tree-filled interior and a lonesome steam vent to the northeast. A hike to the crater from the base and descend will take 4 hours.
