Trek Ethiopia's dramatic Simien Mountains exploring wild nature and visiting remote mountain communities
The Simien Mountains in Ethiopia are filled with dramatic peaks and jagged volcanic plugs. They are, arguably, Africa’s most magnificent skyline.
Join a small group of people and spend 15 days trekking through this remote mountain range. You’ll visit small hamlets, see how villagers manage to put together an income with limited arable land, and encounter large troops of Gelada baboon as they forage for food.
- Explore the castles of Gondar
- Get to know the native fauna and flora
- Visit remote mountain communities
You’ll spend a number of days above 4000 metres – so this is considered a strenuous trek. There is also an optional ascent of Ras Dashen which stands at 4543 metres. The journey includes a great deal of up and down over some fairly exposed and rough trails. The total ascent amount is 6500m while the total descent is 7650m.
There is full porterage throughout and the trails are well marked – despite being quite remote. Along the route you’ll stop at Jinbar Waterfall, Imetgogo, the Enatyie Escarpment, Debre Birhan Selassie Church, and Ras Dashen – Ethiopia highest point.
