Ethiopia: Wild Walk In The Simiens

The Simien Mountains of northern Ethiopia are quite simply among the most spectacular sites the continent has to offer. Formed millions of years ago by river systems cutting through the sandstone rock, they are bounded on the north and east by a massive escarpment, in places over 1000 metres high, from which the views stretch endlessly over the vast plains towards Eritrea. At their foot are the remnants of ancient hills, now eroded into hundreds of pinnacles and buttresses.

Aside from stunning scenery, the park is home to an impressive array of wildlife and because most of the walk is along the escarpment, the trek - though thoroughly impressive - is not overly technical. Add to this the cultural sites of Gonder and Lalibela (which together with the Simien Mountains makes 3 UNESCO World Heritage sites in a week!) and this trip is perfect for anyone with a passion for walking and culture, looking for a short holiday.

The cuisine of Ethiopia is underrated, but the coffee as most people know is out of this world.

When visiting the Simien Mountains, take binoculars - they're great for spotting Ibex and Gelada baboons.

Wear slip on shoes - you're not allowed to wear them in the churches so you'll be taking them off a lot.
