Now we descend from the summit to the active North Crater, following Stephane (apparently just below the Gelai's summit at center) along the path on the crest of the saddle between North and South craters. Soon the spectacular west scarp of the Rift Valley disappears from our view while the inactive Lengai's South crater appears below Kitumbeine shield volcano and Kerimasi stratovolcano (right). Yellow flowers in the foreground adorn the South Crater's floor, lending our camp a pleasant and idyllic atmosphere.
