Why take this tour?

This tour includes the world famous 11 rock cut Lalibela churches  and the very special Danakil Tour to the permanent active volcano Erta Ale, the hottest spot on this planet and also the lowest place on earth. Apart from those highlights you will see and smell Sulphur lakes, watch salt cutting workers in the desert and camel- caravans plodding in the sand. The conditions are not easy- the oldest customer we had was a 73 year old lady though. Anyway, also this tour calls for fit people.
