Ol Doinyo Lengaï, “Mountain of God”

Ol Doinyo Lengaï (“Mountain of God” in the Masaai language) is a unique volcano.

Located in Tanzania, it is the only volcano that emits natrocarbonatite, which is a lava with relatively low temperatures (about 500-600ºC), and much more fluid than silicate lavas.
