“Wonderful scenery”
Review of Menengai Crater

Menengai Crater
Ranked #1 of 8 things to do in Nakuru
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 June 2017 via mobile

I visited this wonderful future on 9th June. Many people refer it to a crater but it's actually a caldera. Craters are normally smaller. The diameter of this caldera is 12 km. Climbing from the bottom to top takes about 3 hours if you are fit but you need nice shoes. Hikers this is a place for you, make sure you carry enough drinking water . honestly no camera can take a satisfactory photo, it's the eyes that can see everything here.

You take care not to slip and fall.People safely stand a small distance away from the fault line. Those who easily get scared cant go near.

The size is quite it. Been to Longonot too, which I personally liked much better. I could recommend the place only if it was without entry fee (or at least no more than 100). Foreigners actually pay 700.
