Rwanda is endowed with the magical scenery of Lake Burera and Ruhondo(Twin lakes) just like in Uganda located between Musanze and the Ugandan border. They are as aresult of a volcanic eruption which blocked river Nyabarongo that was flowing towards the northern part of the Rwanda and both lakes occupy a total area of 2800 hectares of land. Particularly, they are located in Rwanda with in Musanze district at the base of Mount Muhabura a walk away from the Volcanoes national park. The name twin lakes of Burera and Ruhondo were named so because they are situated in the same areas and their physical connection(the mystery, which also makes it magical, is how a lake flows into another lake). Expect to pay the price but the landscape is really great, with the volcanoes in the background, very rural relaxing place with fresh air. As it happens, Lake Burera is almost 150 meters higher than Lake Ruhondo. Relaxing at the lake shores, exposes you to various beautiful view of landscape, wetland habitat, and water birds, Virunga volcanoes, local communities and attractions in the neighboring uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. These breathtaking lakes are suitably located at the base of Mt. Muhabura, Gahinga and Sabyinyo. The hills give a superb view coupled with the sight of the waterfalls. Lake Ruhondo and Lake Burera occupy an area of around 3000 ha.
