It is one of the most scenic and awe-inspiring lakes in Africa, located in a dramatic landscape of lush and verdant sprawling highlands.
Its fresh clear water is dotted by at least 15 islands green with lush trees and shrubs, and the lake is ringed by beautiful scenery of sprawling highlands clad with lush vegetation, plantations, and terraces of crops along the slopes. This amazing scenery is set against a stunning backdrop of cloudy peaks of the Virunga Mountain Volcanoes.
The chain of volcanoes of the Virunga Mountain Range spans the boarders of Uganda, Rwanda and Congo, and Uganda shares 3 of its prominent 8 Volcanoes. The 3 are Mountain Muhavura, Mountain Mgahinga and Mountain Sabinyo.
These are very visible, rising in the background over Lake Mutanda and the sprawling highlands, with white fluffy clouds floating across their peaks. In the morning, thick clouds of mist shroud the lush highlands, and create mystic scenery over Lake Mutanda and such an awe-inspiring view!
