(nick named “the Golden Lake”) has an area of 230km2 Length 18km Width 16km, depth 46m, and altitude 1585m. Lake Langano and Lake Shalla are the only two Lakes in the country considered safe bilharzias free- for swimming. Despite its brown color, the water in Langano is clean and pleasant.
A few birds make Langano their home, but this is less for the nature Lover than the water sports enthusiast and sun worshipper. Although there are hippo, the crocodile population is fortunately small, and you can waterski, windsurf, sail, swim, or sunbathe on the sloping sandy beaches. Boats and waterskies are sometimes a viable on an hourly retinal basis from both hotels on the Lake, whose beaches are popular camping spots.
