Lake Kanae was a lake in Le-Wahi, and the site of Le-Koro.

Like the rest of Mata Nui, Lake Kanae was created by the accidental activation of Mata Nui's camouflage system by the Great Cataclysm.

Takua and Taipu journeyed here from the newly built Le-Koro Highway in Onu-Wahi. Tamaru was later stationed here, due to his fear of heights, to guard against any Rahi attempting to scale the trees to Le-Koro. He soon abandoned this post to join the Chronicler's Company, as only flying Rahi were attacking.

Lake Kanae was cleared of substance by the Bohrok swarms and eventually destroyed by Mata Nui's Reawakening.


The largest lake on Mata Nui, Kanae was situated in Le-Wahi, south of Mangai Volcano. A narrow arm protruded northwest into the heart of the Fau Swamp, while an outflowing river with a large delta connected it to the sea in the southwest. The village of Le-Koro was built in the treetops at its western end, centered on an enormous tree that grew at the water's edge. On the banks, there was a rock with an inscription about the Bohrok.


  • In early media, Lake Kanae was called "Lake Kauae."
