Originally formed by volcanic activity five million years ago, Lake Tana is the largest lake in Ethiopia and the source of the Blue Nile. 84km long and 66km wide, its surface area ranges from 3,000 to 3,500km squared.
The lake supports a large fishing industry in this part of Africa, and is also home to animals and birdlife including hippos and Great White Pelicans. Enjoy a boat ride on this ancient and impressive lake to visit the Azwa Mariam Monastery, or go slightly further afield and experience the colours, sounds and hustle and bustle of the busy Bahir Dar market.
