Details of Lake Tana & Bahir Dar
The source of the Blue Nile, Lake Tana is the largest lake in Ethiopia.
From the city of Bahir Dar, intrepid explorers can take a boat and head out to explore the thirty seven islands which dot the lake. Havens for 13th and 14th century churches and monasteries, these holy sites are filled with ancient manuscripts and artifacts that UNESCO has identified as worth preserving.
The area is also a hotspot for biodiversity, especially birdlife, rendering the area a UNESCO proclaimed biosphere reserve.
