These are beautiful lakes located at the base of Mountain Muhabura and close to the border with Uganda. Lake Burera and Lake Ruhondo are surrounded by steep hills and large waterfalls with a backdrop of the Virunga volcanic mountains. Burera and Ruhondo are separated by a 1km wide strip of land. Water flows from Lake Burera to Lake Ruhondo. Lake Ruhondo and Lake Burera have a combined area surface of 2800 hectare. They are also examples of the lava dammed lakes in east africa related to the story of their formation. the lake waters look green due to the green vegetation that enclose these water bodies which make it more magical.
