Day Trip to Lake Wench, Ethiopia

Leave the city’s bustling streets for Wenchi Crater Lake, and enjoy the serenity of rolling farmland, lush valleys and waterfalls on a full-day tour from Addis Ababa to the heart of an extinct volcano. Walk or ride a 2.5-mile (4-km) trail to the edge of the lake, passing green fields and small villages. Take in views of the lake shore from a peaceful dock, with the chance to hike or ride a mule along the shore, or set out by boat to explore the lake’s small islands.
