Lake Chala Day Trip Tour



8 hours

Tour Type

Tour Description

A crater lake in a caldera at the border between Tanzania and Kenya and 52 km from Moshi town, Lake Chala was measured at a depth of 95 meters, which makes it deeper than the famous Lake Victoria. Filled and drained by underground waters, the lake ranges in color from deep blue to turquoise and green. Take a walk down the 100 metres 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.

This fully guided tour gives you the chance to get up close and personal with the best of Lake Chala while logistics and all operations are taken care of, for you.
