Lake ChalaIs a small volcanic lake found at Tanzania and Kenya border within the Rombo district? it’s a mean depth of 96 meters, have very sharp banks, swimming isn’t allowed thanks to its depth, amazing thing consistent with history it existed by sinking or down warping of the rock and its name came from a Maasai man (Chala) who was living there together with his family before the existence of the place.

The water is extremely clear, there’s no river flowing into the lake rather its water source may be a volcanic channel from Kilimanjaro, so amazing. Water volume decreases within the winter season thanks to ice and increases in summer thanks to ice meltdown. it’s a wildlife corridor so there are few animals like impala, elephants, etc crossing within the area.

Lake Chala

Lake Chala’s average annual rainfall is about 565 millimetres (22.2 in).:215 The surface has average annual evaporation of near 1,735 millimetres (68.3 in).

Approximately 80 per cent of the lake’s inflow comes from groundwater, which springs mostly from rainfall within the montane forest zone of Kilimanjaro at an elevation of 1,800 to 2,800 metres (5,900 to 9,200 ft). It takes about 3 months for groundwater to succeed in the lake.

The only native fish tilapia (Oreochromis hunters), which is found nowhere else within the world. it’s considered critically endangered by the IUCN, and now greatly outnumbered by other tilapia species that are introduced to Lake Chala.

A guide will take you to the lake where you’ll spend your day doing various activities. Lunch is going to be provided. After your day on the lake, you’ll be driven back to Moshi / Arusha
