Ethiopia is the most mountainous country in Africa. The mountains can
be described as rugged, scenic, and high plateau with beautiful
landscape. The country is an ideal place for trekkers. Of course, the
main trekking sites such as Simien Mountains in the north and Bale
Mountains in the southeast could be for fit clients. The treks are mostly
above 3500m above sea level and mountainous. Birana Ethiopia Tours advises
its clients to trek in these areas if they are fit enough.
The trek in Simien Mountains can be combined with the historic north tour to visit the towns with the oldest cultural legacy of the country to discover its treasures in hidden churches and to taste the aroma and color of its markets.
The trek in Bale Mountains can be combined with any of the tours heading south to explore the savannah and its ancestral inhabitants, the tribal clans.
However, mountains are not only made for trekking. What about easy hill walking?
There are easier alternatives adapted to nature lovers. Plain paths crossing wide plateaus, bird’s-eye views, meeting endemic animals of the area and, as all paths lead to somewhere, we will meet villages and farmlands having exposure to the daily life of the inhabitants of the highest elevations of Ethiopia.
