Simien Mountain Trek

Tough but rewarding

The Simien Mountains are one of the major highlands of Africa, rising to their highest point in Ethiopia, Ras Dejen (4,620m), the fourth highest peak in the African continent. Your trekking route is far from the regular tourist trails. It will take you to beautiful lowland valleys and high escarpments, where Amhara villages can be found.

The summit is tough but rewarding, and is followed by a challenging ridge route, topping several 4,000m peaks en route. The trek from Arkwasyie will offer one of the toughest days on the challenge as you leave the higher plateau, cross several substantial ridges and valleys and climb down the near vertical Devil's Staircase with a 900m descent to reach Lamo, one of the most beautiful locations in the Simiens. 

With time in Addis Ababa, the capital, and also in historic Gondar, you will see a little of the sensational ancient culture of this unique and fascinating African country.
