Full description
Looking for a day trip outside Addis Ababa? Taking a trip to Wenchi Crater Lake is a nice choice for spending your weekend vacation. Wenchi Crater Lake is 155 km west of Addis Ababa, between Ambo and Weliso. An extinct volcano, the top of which is 3380 meters above sea level, is a crater that contains a large lake, hot mineral springs, waterfalls, beautiful valleys, and farmland. There is an old monastery with a church situated on one of the lake islands. Start your morning by making a hundred-and-a-half kilometer drive to the West of Addis Ababa. Wenchi Crater Lake lies at around 3000m (10,000 feet) above sea level in the crater of an extinct volcano in the Oromia region. After paying entrance, and parking fees and purchasing the obligatory guide at the office, you drive uphill for a kilometer to reach the departure point. You have the option of hiking the 4 km to the lakeshore on your own or descending on horseback. The downhill trek is full of varied greens on the hillsides and the lake’s surface. After an hour and a couple of villages, a field opens to the shore and a small dock. You will have the opportunity for mule riding, hiking, and a boat trip.
