Accomodations Around Lake Chala

 

Lake Chala is a crater lake in a caldera on the borders of Tanzania and Kenya on the eastern edge of Mount Kilimanjaro, not far from the town of Moshi and 8 km north of Taveta.
Depending on the time of year, it ranges in colour from deep blue to turquoise and green, it is surrounded by a 100 metres high crater rim. The lake is fed by groundwater flows, which come from Mount Kilimanjaro, fed and drained under ground with a rate of about 10 million m³ / year. Even the Chala loses volume.
It´s level had dropped in the last 6 years, by 2.4 metres, at the start of 2011 the water level has risen again by over 1 metre.
The lake is home to the endemic Lake Chala tilapia (Oreochromis hunteri), which is now considered Critically Endangered on the IUCN red list of threatened species
