Being a part of the Abijata-Shala Park, Lake Shala is separated from Lake Abijata to the South by a narrow strip of land. It offers a delightful scenic view that comes from its deep blue color with excellent reflections of the magnificent Western hills. At the North Eastern shore of lake one can be impressed by a tumbling cascade of hot springs and smoke of vapor that rushes out down to the bay.
This is typical investment potential for a spa resort development and some investors are being attracted by this intact nature. Lake Shala is also an ideal lake for water transportation to make tours around the tiny islands and for connecting its western and eastern shore. At South West of Lake Shala there is also a small alkaline Crater Lake known as Lake Chitu. This small lake is the best site of bird watching, especially noted for its high flamingo concentration.
