Sacred meteorite crater lake

THIS one million-year-old sacred lake was created when a giant meteorite crash landed in what was once a lush rainforest. In Ashanti, Ghana, Lake Bosumtwi is revered by locals as sacred and tradition dictates that they can only fish in the lake using wooden planks called paduas. Nowadays the lake - which stretches across 10.5 kilometres - is under threat from deforestation and modernisation.
