Description

Overview

Wenchi crater lake, incorrectly spelled as Wanchi or Wonchi, is a volcano located 98km west of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Located between Ambo and Woliso town, it is situated at an altitude of 3,450 masl and 13.5km from Mount Denbi.

Wenchi Lake

This highest volcano has a 4 x 4 km wide caldera and a single crater lake, Wenchi lake, about 450 m below the rim. Though the study of the caldera is incomplete, it contains hot springs, waterfalls, valleys, and beautiful scenery. In addition, there are two islands accessible by ferry, one of which hosts an ancient monastery, Cherkos Monastery.

Its unique landscape and various animals and plant species became a popular tourist destination. Moreover, tourism has appeared as one of the rapidly growing economic sectors in this district. The main factors to recently nominate Wenchi as one of the best tourist sites in the world include; road construction from Ambo-Woliso town and the “Gebeta Lehager" projects initiative, launched by the Prime Minister in August 2020.

When to Go

Travelling in Ethiopia is possible at any time of year, but each season will bring with it a different experience. Many tourists choose to go between September and November when the landscape is alive with green after the rainy season. December through April is also fine hiking weather, as the sun is often out and temperatures are higher, but views tend to be a little hazy, and the landscape turns from vivid green to yellow and dry. The least popular hiking months are June, July and August when rain falls daily. Temperatures during the day tend to be comfortably warm in all seasons but can fall below zero at night, so pack warms clothes and a good sleeping bag.

Keep In Mind

To make sure that your environmental impact is minimal, whenever you travel, don’t forget to take the following steps:
  • Always carry ID or relevant document at your side;
  • Try to avoid expensive jewelry or unnecessary equipment, if not carry them with you at all costs;
  • Do not collect or damage any vegetation and do not disturb or feed wild animals;
