Create an itinerary including Lake Abbe
Dominated by a dormant volcano, Lake Abbe provides plenty of chances to spot local animals, such as monkeys, gazelles, and all kinds of birds. The surrounding area feature hundreds of chimney-like structures, shaped by wind out of limestone. The landscape may seem harsh, but it's far from uninhabited--local nomads live and graze their goats and camels on the lake's shores. Our Dikhil Region vacation app makes visiting Lake Abbe and other Dikhil Region attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
