Trekking in Ethiopia

The Ethiopian highlands, blessed with a temperate climate and grand mountain scenery, offer superb trekking opportunities. Trekking in the remote isolated splendor of the Semen Mountains, the Bale Mountains, around the rock-hewn churches of St. Lalibela, and the unique Surma is a breathtaking experience. Ethiopia is little known and little visited yet it is an amazing place to see. Ethiopia has a unique culture, complex history and some superb scenery - a wonderful experience for the truly adventurous traveler. It is not a stereotypical East African country: from the fertile highlands in the south through to the Semens of the north, the landscape is extremely mountainous. Arguably, one of the most beautiful ranges in Africa are found here. Our trekking itineraries lead you through landscapes covered by deep gorges, jagged plugs, and striking rock towers. En route you will have the chance to climb some of Africa's highest peaks: Ras Dashen (4620m), Buyit Ras (3250m), Bwahit (4430m), Batu (4203), Konteh peak (4132). More on trekking sites in Ethiopia
