Why take this tour?

Northern Ethiopia boasts a wealth of both natural and historical treasures. You will see the spectacular "Smoking Water" of the Blue Nile Falls, take a boat trip to the famous island monasteries of Lake Tana and admire the medieval castles of Gondar, described as Ethiopia's "Camelot". You'll enjoy five and a half days of superb walking in the Simien Mountains National Park, where you can spot endemic wildlife including Gelada baboons and Ethiopian wolves (if you're lucky), as well as trekking to the summit of Ras Dashen (4543m), Ethiopia`s highest peak, with views that extend northwards to Eritrea.
