ETHIOPIA MOUNTAIN CLIMBING
Great Opportunity For Adventure & Travels
The Ras Dejen summit is located inside the premises of the Simien Mountains National Park. This is where you can indulge yourself in some great hiking opportunities where you’ll get to marvel at the incredibly rich flora and fauna. Moreover, the Bale Mountains National Park has mountain climbing prospects where you’ll trek through different and unique zones. This includes grasslands, plateaus, escarpments, and dense forests.
To the unfamiliar, trekking tours in the surrounding landscapes of Lalibela holds up a special place. You’ll get to admire renowned rock-carved churches while climbing up the Abune Yosef Mountain. Plus, welcoming initiations will be performed by the native highland people of the region at a traditional tukul house, a distinctive experience indeed!
Landing finally at the Danakil Depression, called the gateway to hell (don’t be frightened it’s just a saying) offers a great hike up the volcanic crater rim. You’ll get to camp on the rim of the crater too, where you’ll be able to see an active lava lake, perfect for those looking for an enthralling Ethiopia Mountain Climbing adventure.

Ethiopia is not a good country for big game-viewing when compared with other safari destinations like Kenya. However, the country’s mountains are home to some very special and rare species including the Mountain Nyala, Ethiopian Wolf, Gelada Baboons, and the Walia Ibex.
Trousers are also fine (though few local women wear them except in Addis Ababa) but shorts or sleeveless tops are not really acceptable, especially in Islamic areas and rural settings. Men should generally wear long trousers and a shirt or T-shirt covering the shoulders.
