The Simien Mountains present the most dramatic mountain scenery in Africa: Great volcanic plugs, formed some 40 million years a go and eroded over the aeons into fantastic crags, pinnacles and flat topped mountains, ” the chess pieces of the Gods” as one writer described them, tower over precipitous gorges, river valleys and plains stretching all the way to Eritrea. There are many peaks over 4000 meters, and above.

This trek leads through landscapes covered by deep gorges, jagged plugs and striking rock towers. On route we climb some of Africa’s highest peaks: Ras Dashen (4620m), Buyit Ras (3250m), Bwahit (4430m). This park is a haven to many endemic species of wildlife and flora, including the Gelada baboon, Walia Ibex, and many bird specious. The Park has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

This trip is just a perfect combination of Ethiopia’s incredible diversity of less known and less visited ancient civilization, culture and nature. On this trekking adventure, you will also have the chance to interact with the local host community and witness the life style and culture of the people living isolated in the mountains with a unique and ancient farming style.
