Hiking adventure to the impressive Zala Waterfall
The area around Debre Libanos in North Shoa is full of deep spectacular canyons and deep valleys. Especially in and after the rain season there are lots of impressive waterfalls dropping down from the fertile flat plateaus.
On this hiking trip we will get very close to the many waterfalls of this area, which are hidden in a labyrinth of canyons and gorges. Compared to the well-known waterfalls in Debre Libanos or Derba these waterfalls are more impressive, and the places are being visited very rarely if at all. The camping experience in the farmers village completes a unique adventure completely off the beaten track but still close to Addis Ababa.
Note: Please consider that it's a serious hike of 5-6h on each of the 2 days with 1 night camping. Also the path is not easy: it's very often up and down, and the path is full of stones. So you need to walk concentrated the whole time and be in good physical condition. It's a route for experienced hikers only.
After the first trip run in September 2022 we wrote a blog article about it.
