Simien Mountains Private Trekking Tour 3 days

This spectacular UNESCO protected site will not fail to take your breath away, especially from the top of Ras Dashen, Ethiopia's, highest point at 4543m above sea level. Be awestruck in the landscape's every direction, from the deep valleys to the jagged mountain peaks. Once again, wildlife lovers will get a thrill from Ethiopia's animal range: over 20 large mammal species and over 130 bird species reside in the park. Amongst these, you can spot the gelada baboon, the carcal (large cat), and the three metre wing-spanned lammergeier (bearded vulture). Endangered species can also be found, including the Ethiopian wolf and the Walia Ibex, a wild goat found nowhere else in the world. Some say the Simien Mountains are the rival of Colorado's Grand Canyon; the only way to find out is to see them for yourself.

Our clients say:

I booked a private guide for my vist at the churches in Lalibela and tours to Asheton Maryam Monastry and to Yemrehanna Krestos Church and it was really great! The native guide was perfect in both, educated as a tourist guide and also showing me his culture, country and religion! All the entrance fees, car and Bajaja fares have been included and the guide was always intime and very ambitious to show and explain all the point of interest to me! In my opinion a tour guide is a huge benefit for visitors because the churches are not singnposted at all and you won`t understand most of the meanings, hidden subjects and details without one. At least an appeal: please respect that this places are not a museum but holy places for the people! You also won`t go to Vatikan in shorts and tanktop! Pants, longsleeve and hiking boots are also more functionell because of the sun and the stony pathes!
