Day trip to Wenchi Crater Lake
Route: Addis Ababa – Wiliso – Wenchi – Addis Ababa
Start your morning by making a hundred and a half kilometer drive to 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, 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.
