The little lakeshore town of Gorgora (ጎርጎራ), 60km southwest of Gonder, has a slow, tropical vibe. It provides the chance to see rarely visited monasteries and makes a good excursion for birders. Mostly it offers an easy, comfortable escape from well-trodden tourist trails. If you've already visited the monasteries from Lake Tana's southern shore, these will struggle to impress – come instead for the quiet natural beauty of the place.
