A trip to one monastery was enough - be very sure to pay 200 birr or less - the rip-off of Ethiopia exists here too.

Go if u like a boat ride, however the water is dirty, so I see no attraction. You could sit and chill the garden.

The lake and the very much holiday-like atmosphere around it - with hotels, bars, restaurants (great fresh fish) and clubs - gives even a business trip a good vibe.

As said, I am always in for a boat ride. Visited multiple islands with small village, nice old churches and jungle-like nature. Had a great day.

Visiting the monasteries on the lake is awsome, those places are amazing, it's quite fun to get in and out of the boat....3 to 5 monasteries are enough, you have to pay 100 birrs to enter each time, and to tip (50 birrs) the guide.
