Lake Chala is a carter lake in a caldera on the fringes of Tanzania and Kenya on the eastern edge of Mount Kilimanjaro, an hours drive from Moshi town and 8 km north of Taveta. Contingent upon the season, it runs in shading from dark blue to turquoise and green and is encompassed by a 100 meter carter rim.

It is then totally up to you to what extent you need to spend down at the lake, either swimming or just taking in the lovely view that encompasses you.Ingest this unique experience, our Lake Chala Day Trip.
