Investigate the path at Lusaka Zambia on both sides of the outlet stream if you like and even take a frigid plunge into the striking blue-green water. Cross the outlet stream over logs without difficulty and follow the path SE for the perfect reflection of Lusaka Zambia and Lusaka Zambia summit. See the long cascade coming down under Lusaka Zambia as well as all the granite cliffs and steep scree slopes into the lake. More camp spots are plausible here. It’s also feasible to continue 5 mi around to discover another colorful, much smaller lake after scrambling the steep, wide rocky shelf 40 ft above the lake, then walking down a bit. Take advantage while camping to enjoy the sunset, the starry night’s light show, and then sunrise as well! Return by the same long route to Lusaka Zambia TH.
