Ngongu is a sacred place for Mkyashi village, and it's easy to see why. Take a dala-dala from Marangu to Mkyashi and then take the road going left when you get off from the dala-dala stand. Eventually you will see Ngongu's treeless head in the sky as a backdrop to everything to your left. The easiest thing to do is just keep walking towards, asking people along the way where the trail is.
Once you reach the top it will be well worth the effort! The soft grassy peak is a great place to hang out for a few hours and relax while taking in the view. In one direction you will have a stunning view of the Par'e Mountains. In the other, Kilimanjaro's peaks. And on either side you will be overlooking village life on Mount Kilimanjaro. You will also no doubt make some young friends along the way!http://www.mkyashi.org
