About
If you're looking for an active day out, the Wenchi Crater Lake and its surroundings make an excellent choice. The extinct volcano, which reaches a height of 3386m, is famed for its beautiful scenery and there are plenty of options to explore by foot, boat and horse. In addition, the project is administered by the Wenchi Eco-Tourism Association, so you can be sure that local communities are benefiting from your visit. Admire the stunning scenery of this massive volcanic crater and lake and explore the many trails by foot or on horseback. Discover hot springs, waterfalls, villages and watermills along the way and take a boat trip to the ancient island monastery of Wenchi Chirkos.

    Wenchi Crater Lake
    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    The Wenchi Eco-Tourism Association (WETA) is a local, community-centred initiative which promotes sustainable ecotourism. Its mission is to improve the livelihoods of local people by promoting ecotourism development through the sustainable use of natural and cultural resources. Approximately 2,400 Oromifa-speaking Oromo people live in the crater. Orthodox Christianity is the dominant religion and has a strong influence on social and economic life. Most households rely on agriculture as their main source of income and cultivate enset (false banana) and vegetables. Visitors can savor the local foods on offer, especially honey, Enset-kolo, or local drinks like Arake and beer. The area offers a range of different trekking opportunities, from 1-16km, which can be undertaken either by foot or on horseback, as well as the opportunity to take a boat trip on the lake.
