Trek through the Danakil Depression, one of the hottest, harshest and, at -125 meters below see level, lowest places on earth, to Erta Ale Volcano before venturing high into the Simien Mountains to summit Ras Dashan, the highest point in Ethiopia at 4,510 meters above sea level.
Ethiopia is one of our favourite countries, which we have enjoyed travelling to for over 10 years. With its diverse and challenging environments, it makes the perfect setting for a fundraising trip that will help give back to young people in a community that is close to our heart.
In 2017, this itinerary is running and a charity trek and the money raised from the trek will go towards the Wild Frontiers Foundation project to establish four new e-learning centres in remote school across Ethiopia. It costs £2500 to set up each e-learning centre and install 25 recycled computers, loaded with educational software. Teachers from the schools will also be trained in basic digital literacy skills, simple hardware maintenance and how to use computers to teach a different subjects. It will be a self-funded trek, in that you pay your way to take on the challenge, and we ask you to commit to raise a minimum of £500 for the cause.
This trip offers amazing sites and challenges in equal measures, also giving you the opportunity to kick off your walking boots and enjoy the country’s colourful capital, Addis Ababa, the UNESCO World Heritage town of Lalibela with its amazing rock hewn churches and the medieval castles of Gondar.
Due to the ever changing nature of the volcano and the region, the visibility of the lava lake and lava flows may vary. Please contact the office for the current situation and up to date information.
