Come and join us for another trip out of the city to Wenchi Crater Lake, 155km west of Addis Ababa. The lake lies at around Protected content above sea level in the crater of an extinct volcano. There are hot springs, waterfalls, a monastery, beautiful valleys and farmlands. It will take us around 3.5 hours to reach the lake with a comfort break on the way. For this trip, we need to use a bigger level 1 bus since the better quality coaster buses cannot access the rough 35kms of road to the lake. Once reaching the lake, we will have a packed lunch enjoying the fantastic views. After lunch, we will hike around part of the lake. If you don't want to hike/can’t hike or you don't want to hike all the way, you can hire a horse to ride at your own cost. We then return back to Addis Ababa. The price includes return bus trip from Addis to Wenchi Crater, local guide, picnic lunch, water, soft drinks and beer. There may be additional costs for entrance fee (bring your residence cards if you have them) and tip for the horse if you ride one. Please pay for the trip beforehand. The easiest way to do this is to make a cash transfer at Protected content Please also order your choice of sandwich from bacon, ham, ham and cheese, chicken, egg or vegetable. (fasting).
