Hiking on the 'Roof of Africa' in the Simien Mountains
This hiking tour looks like a classic historical Northern route. In fact, the trip combines the highlights of Northern Ethiopia including the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Lalibela and Gondar as well as the Biosphere Reserve at Lake Tana. But it offers much more than this. You’re going to explore extensively the Simien Mountains hiking from the well-known plateaus with amazing views down to its inhabited and less visited lowlands where you’re going to get in touch with the locals.
Accompanied by one of our experienced SimienEcoTours guides (English, Italian, Spanish, French & German available) you will visit you will visit the sights in Lalibela and Gondar before heading to the 'Roof of Africa' in the Simien Mountains National Park. Your 7 days/ 6 nights trek is accompanied by our team of muleteers and a cook that make your trekking experience unforgettable. You can enjoy the spectacular scenery of the mountains with your light backpack and get comfortable in our overnight camps with good food. The trails lead you along the lofty high plateaus with unique flora and fauna and later down into the lowlands where farmers plow their lands. There will be plenty of time to meet locals and some camps are right inside the villages.
Overnights are spent in wisely selected and mainly beautifully located standard to mid-range hotels and lodges and during the trek in campsites. Upgrades to more atmospheric high-range lodges in some destinations are possible. Talk to our Travel Experts.
