The view from Abiatta-Shala National Park over Lake Shala and Lake Abiatta is stunning. On your way in to the National Park, you can get an informal guide who walks you around and you can see antelope, warthogs and ostritches. It's quite sad because the lakes are stunning (but as they are salt-lakes, there are no fish to feed the people living there), so is the scenery - breath-taking in fact - but the land is eroded, trees are being cut down and the land is bare and the people that live there are really suffering which was visible all around.

The best time to get there is early in the morning when the steam and early sunrays give beautiful photo opportunities. However, the park gates open much later and the bureaucracy prevents you to enjoy the best bird watching time.

This is the deepest lake among Riftvalley lakes. It is the most attractive lake with Islands and silent activities on and around this lake. If it's potential utilized properly, I think this must be the most beautiful lake of riftvalley lakes. I heard, a resort is coming up in near future and if things goes as planned this is an idealic vaccation destination. It is too salty to swim but if the said resort open with fresh water access then it is possible to swim in this lake. If boat service available on this lake then it is possible to visit the islands.
