- Climbing Ras Deshen which offer you the most rewarding views from the Summit.. truly an epic experience and so different from other landscapes I know.
- The big open vista of the Simien mountains. The escapement and cliff views are like nothing i have ever experienced before.
- Exploring Lalibela where the churches have been craved out from the bed rock. It is pretty impressive to see.
- Trekking with the gelada “baboon” . A species of Old World monkey found only in the Ethiopian Highlands.
Join us on a trek through the spectacular Simien Mountains to reach Ras Dashen, Ethiopia’s highest peak – standing at 4550m.
We’ll spend 5 days trekking through dramatic scenery and rugged landscapes – from deep canyons fed by plummeting waterfalls to open moorland tundra scattered with giant lobelias and passing traditional rural villages and farmland for an insight into local life.
We’ll get to see Ethiopia’s fascinating wildlife up close and personal on our trek, including the iconic Gelada Baboons and more elusive Walia Ibex – found nowhere else on Earth.
This expedition also includes visits to the unmissable cultural sites of Gondar’s royal castles and the UNESCO rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, so you get to experience the best of this unique and beautiful country.
Next expedition: 20 – 30 November 2020, leader: Ade Summers.
