Mount Longonot reviews
Very nice tour, a bit steep but definitely worth it. Climbing up takes about one hour. The view was gorgeous. Our guide John has shown us a different less used way down where we could see gazelles... more »
One the most amazing experiences in Kenya! I strongly advice to buy the wood stick at the beginning because it will be your lifesaver. Also bring you lots of water and food. It is a trail that takes.... more »
Can't forget the memories I had that day climbing that tall mountain 🙂🙂 wow.... The cool air on top there was just amazing and plus the people I met up there..... I can't wait to visit the place... more »
One of the best experience for mountain climbers. Has steep slope and once you get to the top which is about 2500m above sea level. The tough ones would dare walk round the rim which is about 7.5km.
Mt.Longonot makes for a great hike. Certainly not easy especially as you approach the crater rim but the views from up there are amazing. The crater itself is beautiful!it is such a beautiful place to get away,have some fun with family and friends,the activities are so great such as going round the mount and reaching to the peak summit wow so breath taking and unforgettable experience
The nearest and safe mountain from Nairobi to climb by yourself. The track is wide open and not too hard to climb, very good for weekend excursions.
Real hiking experience. Come prepared. Come appropriately dressed
Going up this peak is a great way to test yourself before you attempt other summits. The rocks are dusty, and the path can sometimes get narrow. But if you pace yourself and watch your step, you'll be alright. If you start climbing early enough, no later than 8 AM in my experience, which was in the cold season, you could get to the peak while there are still clouds on it. The top is an amazing chill spot. But the sign keeps falling off.
