Show on map A great place for a morning or afternoon trip on foot or bicycle (during night time some nasty dogs hang around, and only motor vehicles are safe from them). During the rainy season, they drain the reservoir in order to prevent flood, but it’s still a lovely place.
Some of the roads leading from the reservoir have irrigation channels, and you can sometimes see kids swimming there. If you decide to join them, you’d better wear goggles (otherwise you might have red eyes). Also remember that it’s much easier to swim away from the lake than towards it. If you get tired, swallow your pride, climb out, and walk the rest of the way while kids try to pretend not to laugh at you
