Adventure Holidays to Ethiopia
Ethiopia is not everyone's first choice for a holiday in Africa but is well worth visiting as it is very different from neighbouring countries. Surrounded by mountains, Ethiopia has developed a religion, calendar and language all of its own. The Simien Mountains are arguably the most spectacular mountain range in Africa and are an excellent place for a trekking holiday. The famed historic route is a well-trodden route for visitors including Lalibela with its 13th century rock-hewn churches, Bahir Dar with the nearby Tississat Falls (also known as Blue Nile Falls) and Lake Tana, Gondar with its medieval castle and Axum, the alleged resting place of the Ark of the Covenant. In the south of Ethiopia is the famed Omo Valley with a multitude of different tribes and ethnicities. In the east is Harar which is considered the fourth most holy city by muslims.
