Why take this tour?

Discover about the hidden beauties of Lalibela and it's surroundings with a community based tourism tour. - UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE CHURCHES OF LALIBELA. The churches are excavated from a sloping mass of red volcanic scoria under laid by dark grey basalt and interconnected by a maze of tunnels and passages with openings to hermit caves and catacombs the rock-hewn churches give the impression of an underground city. But not only have the rock-churches survived until today. Something far older has, too. - YEMREHANNA KRISTOS CHURCH. Inside the cave, a beautiful church presents itself, built the traditional way (not like the churches of Lalibela) this church is laid out on a foundation of Africa Olive Wood. While the main structure is a combination of wooden and granite struts. - ASHETON MARYAM MONASTERY CHURCH. A popular goal for a day-trip, the Asheton Maryam Monastery  is one of the highest in Ethiopia, set at an elevation of almost 3700m to the southeast of Lalibela.
