Lake Chala


A trip to River Lumi Resort is not complete without our free guided hike to the mystical Crater Lake. Lake Chala is an inter-territorial lake that straddles the border between Kenya and Tanzania and was formed as a result of the volcanic activity of the Mount Kilimanjaro. It is surrounded by a steep crater rim with a maximum height of 170 metres..

The Resort is a custodian of the dwindling river Lumi, which meanders about 800 metres away as it makes its way to Lake Jipe, located 32km from the resort. The river plays a critical role in supporting agriculture in the area.
