These lakes formed as a result of volcanic activity, where the largest River in Rwanda (Nyabarongo River) used to flow northward to Ndorwa (many years ago this part was for Rwandan side, but currently it belongs to Uganda), Due to the volcanic eruption which took a place in the volcanic region in Northern part of Rwanda, precisely due to the eruption of Muhabura volcano(currently is considered as dormant volcano), the lava flows from volcanoes blocked the Nyabarongo river’s channel, this led to the formation of these twin lakes of Bulera and Ruhondo also considered as ”Lava dammed lakes”, and the divert of Nyabarongo river by flowing south east ward where it joins Akanyaru River to form Akagera River.
As you pass along the Northern Province to reach Ruhondo lake, you will enjoy the revitalizing views and landscapes of the Country of a Thousand Hills. When the sky is clear, enjoy lunch with the view of Muhabura volcano. Head back to Kigali via the Northern province’s Musanze town.
