Mount Longonot is a stratovolcano found to the southeast of Lake Naivasha, a freshwater lake in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya. The mountain is believed to have last erupted in the 1860’s. Its name is gotten from the Maasai word Oloonong’ot, signifying mountain of many peaks.
Mount Longonot is secured by Kenya Wildlife Service as a major part of Mount Longonot National Park. A 3.1 km trail keeps running from the recreation center passageway up to the hole edge, and proceeds in a 7.2 km circle surrounding the hole. The entire visit (entryway around the crater rim) of 13.5 km takes around 4–5 hours taking into consideration essential rest breaks – parts of the trail are vigorously dissolved and extremely steep. The park gate is at around 2150 m asl and the crest at 2780 m asl yet following the rugged edge includes significantly more than the 630 m vertical distinction.
