General about this Tour

Ethiopia offers a wealth of attractions for culture buffs, from centuries old rock-hewn churches to atmospheric, historical towns and grand castles.

There are hundreds of rock- hewn churches found in Tigray Region built in the 12th to the 15th century, most of them perched in inaccessible mountain tops. The majority of them are concentrated around Hawzien, Adigrat and wiqro.

Lalibella could be considered as the 8th wonder of the world. A cluster of eleven churches divided in to two groups are all hewn out of solid rocks. These amazing fits of architecher were able to be achieved in the 12th century.

On this stretch of the country are found many of the famous touristic sight like to Blue Nile Gorge, the “Tis Isat “ or smoking water of the Nile Falls and Bahirdar town by the Lake Tana with its 12th -15th century Island Monasteries.

Further up North is the Gondar town with its 17th century castles and early medieval age churches with fantastic wall paintings.

The Semien Mountains, rightly known as the ‘Roof of Africa”, is among some of the natural wonders of the world. With its breath taking scenic beauty and endemic wild life like the Gelada Baboon, Ibex and Mountain Nyala, it is an ideal place for easy as well as serious hikers and mountain climbers.
