    Yes, the 45 m 400 metre wide falls would have been impressive if the dam had not been built or if it was at the end of the rainy season. Known locally as Tis Abay (Smoke of the Nile).

    Bahir Dar is at the southern end of Lake Tana. The lake has one outlet, the Blue Nile. The lake is often considered to be the source of the Blue Nile although in fact it must be one of the hundreds of rivers which run into the lake.
