SIMIEN MOUNTAIN TREKKING
Great Opportunity For Adventure & Travels
The Simien Mountain Range also occupies the highest peak in Ethiopia – Ras Dashen, rising 4,500 metres above sea level. The Simien Mountain Trekking Tour also allows you to see an expansive concentration of wildlife. This includes the endemic Gelada monkeys, the rare Walia Ibex, Ethiopian wolves, and caracals.
And that’s without even touching on the vast range of unique flora of the mountain. Plus, one of the most notable things about Simien Mountain Trekking is experiencing a climb in the few spots of tropical Africa where snowfall regularly occurs.
During the 2 days of Simien Mountain Trekking, you will be covering a distance of around 22 km – roughly 10.5 km. each day. And, the overall walking time will be 10 to 12 hours, spread across the two days. This will give you plenty of time to stop for pictures, rest, lunch, and take in the incredible views and wildlife.
The best time of the year for Simien Mountain Trekking is during the dry season, which is from November to April. Remember that you can’t trek the Simien Mountains independently and having a certified guide alongside you is necessary. Thus, go for a Simien Mountain Trekking adventure with us at Taitu Tours and experience the best that this Ethiopian Destination has to offer.
