Lake Chala is Crater Lake in a caldera at the border between Tanzania and Kenya and 52 km from Moshi town, Lake Chala is said to be the deepest inland water body in Africa with a depth of about 3 km. Well, there are a lot of fairy tales and rumors about the lake. It was measured at a depth of 95 meters, which makes it deeper than the famous Lake Victoria. Filled and drained by underground streams, the lake ranges in color from deep blue to turquoise and green. Take a walk down the 100m deep crater rim to the lakeshore and cool your feet at the water’s edge among the rocks as you watch the water ripple peacefully through the lake in shimmering delight. Lake Chala and the surrounding area are spectacularly interesting, not just because of Kilimanjaro that can be seen on clear days towering in the background but also because it thrives with life. Walking around you can spot plenty of birds (about 200 species) and small mammals such as blue monkeys, Colobus monkeys, baboons, dik-dik, and kudu. This place is a real find for tourist who likes panoramic view s and quiet recreation.
