Trek the highest peaks at the Horn of Africa
Ethiopia is the roof of Africa. A paradise for summiters. On this challenging trekking trip, you will climb dizzying heights in the ascent of the two highest mountains in the country, Ras Dashen (4,550 meters) in Simien National Park and Abuna Yoseph (4,260 meters) in the Lasta Mountains near Lalibela.
Accompanied by one of our experienced SimienEcoTours mountains guides (English, Italian, Spanish, French & German available) you will visit the world famous rock churches in Lalibela before leaving for a 4-days trekking above Lalibela in the astonishing Lasta Mountains. A trek that leads you through villages, to nature refuges and to some rock churches hidden far up in the mountains. There will be plenty of time to meet locals along the way and to get cosy in your community stays. Followed by a break in the ancient capital of Ethiopia in Gondar you will then start a 7-days trek through the nature of Simien Mountains National Park that combines the highlands with the 4,550 meters high Ras Dashen peak - the highest mountain in Ethiopia - with the lowlands of the Simiens. 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.
All treks are 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.
