We had been to Wonchi crater lake few times. From Addis Ababa the capital of Ethiopia one has to travel west about 120 km to reach a town Ambo. From Ambo one needs to travel south about 20 km to reach Wonchi crater lake. The road from Addis Ababa to Ambo is good. There is no well laid road from Ambo to Wonchi and with many difficult-to-navigate pits. Once reaching Wonchi, one has to buy entry ticket from a small tourist office. The entry fee is about ETB 50 and the payment for the guide is ETB 50. Then one has to trek down the hill or ride the horse for 4 km to reach the lake. The charge for the horse is about ETB 100. Trekking would take about an hour. Horse ride would take about 45 minutes. There are two paths to reach the lake. One of the paths has a hot water cascade (Don't expect water gushing, it would be like water flowing from 3 inch pipe). The site of lake and the geography would be scenic. Its a must-visit place. After a tiresome travel one would really enjoy the beauty. The place needs to be visited between August - September and February - June.
