The central lowlands of Ethiopia

8 Comments · Topography

The central lowlands Ethiopia from Chew Bahir to the Gulf of Zula between the walls of the two highlands, are covered with recent volcanic material and patches of older and new lava and recent sedimentary materials.

The lakes sub-region, from Ziway to Chamo, is a relatively higher area than the Afar plain. East flowing rivers from the western highlands, the Meki, Bilate, and westward flowing rivers from the eastern highlands, replenish the waters of the Upper Rift Valley lakes.
