The Blue Nile
The Blue Nile is the other river that forms the Nile. It starts with a bright blue colour in it’s waters but later, when it comes near Sudan the darker sediment it carries changes the shade of blue, making it darker. The Blue Nile transports two thirds of the water that flows into the Nile, even though it is shorter than the White Nile.It originates at Lake Tana, in Ethipia.
This is Lake Tana, where it flows into the Blue Nile.
Lake Tana is the Blue Nile's Source. It is the largest Lake in Ethiopia,with approximately 84 kilometers in length and 66 kilometersin width.Lake Tana has many islands on it, but The most important are Tana Qirqos, Daga Island, Dek Islan and Mitraha. In the isolated Monesteries resting on Islands of this Lake, treasures of the Ethiopian Church and Remains of ancient Ethiopian Emperors are kept. This means that these islands, on this Lake, are very important.
