Lake Chala Day Trip


Most famous lake in Kilimanjaro which marks the border between Tanzania and Kenya on the Eastern edge. It’s a crater lake which is fed by groundwater flows, comes from Kilimanjaro. Depends on the time of year, it ranges in colour from deep blue to green it is surrounded by a 100 meters high crater rim. The surrounding area is real interesting because of active nature with lots of bird species, blue monkeys, baboons, colubus monkeys and the best view of mountain Kilimanjaro.


Around 10 am you will leave at your hotel and drive to lake challa for 2 hours.  On arrival you will go through park formalities before starting viewing amazing lake originated from Kilimanjaro mountain.
