Mountain Biking Trip at Wenchi and Dendi Crater Lakes
Just a short drive from Addis Ababa lies the magnificent volcanic crater lake of Wenchi. Mountain biking along its rim with terrific vistas into its steep crater is one of the most spectacular cycling tours you can do in Ethiopia. This trip also brings you to the neighboring Dendi double crater lake which is no less spectacular. On unknown roads and trails your guide will cycle with you through green Oromo villages on top of the dormant volcanoes and through villages. A mountain biking tour with great enjoyment due to some really exhilarating downhill sections.
Accompanied by one of our experienced SimienEcoTours mountain biking guides (English & German available) you go on this adventure. Your trip starts in Addis Ababa with a quick transfer to Lake Wenchi from where you will head off with your rental mountain bikes.
On a nice trail loop you will discover the beauty of the villages and craters before returning back to the car. Your driver will then transfer you to the nearby Negash Resort for your overnight stay in this old palace of Emperor Haile Selassie with its green garden and some wildlife around. Definitely a place to relax on your second day and take a dip in the pool filled with warm spring mineral water. Or you just head of for another bike ride the next morning before returning back to Addis Ababa in the late afternoon.
This trip can easily be extended by one or several more days. If you need more info just ask our Travel Experts.
