Mount Elgon

East Africa’s top trekking mountain is Mount Elgon. Among Africa’s great peaks, Elgon is the largest volcano with the largest crater. It is one of the biggest calderas in the globe.
The name of the place comes from its Massai name, “Ol Doinyo Ilgoon,” which means “Breast Mountain” and was also called “Masaba”.
It’s just as breathtaking as Kilimanjaro but less crowded. Plus, with fewer people on the slopes, you’re much more likely to see wildlife. In the crater, there are hot springs for soaking in addition to a number of waterfalls on the slopes! A memorable experience was scaling the mountain.
