The Simien is definitely the most beautiful mountain range in Africa. Vast and unique, the highland plateau is capped by a dramatic skyline of jagged volcanic plugs and split by deep gorges and gullies. The views across this landscape are breathtaking: the striking towers and formations having been described as 'the chess pieces of the Gods'. Our trek takes us to both the highland and rural lowland areas, with an ascent of Ras Dashen, the highest peak in Ethiopia at 4543m, and the fourth highest in Africa.
A haven too many endemic species of flora and wildlife , including the gorgeous Gelada Baboon (heart blooded baboon) and Walia Ibex and many other interesting mammals .The Simien National Park has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
