Get a guide to show you around the lake for a hike that will excite you. There's a zipline for those more courageous. A very interesting back story and great photo opportunities. Don't mind the begging children.

The lake is lovely and there's a perfect short, circular walk around the old crater. The only down side was being pestered by people wanting to sell fossils, stones and jewellery once you'd completed the walk.
