Enjoy the Adventure

This community trekking tour in Lalibela is just a perfect introduction to Ethiopia’s incredible diversity of an ancient civilisation and culture in combination with incredible highlands and unique nature. Here, the incomparable landscape of the Abune Yosef Mountain contrasts with some of the most beautiful scenery of the lowlands of Bilbala and Wag Yimra. This trekking route will give you the opportunity to explore one of the most amazing places in Ethiopia and stay in community camps or tukuls (round thatched houses) while sharing scenarios with both the locals and the endemic species under a flawless starry sky.

Combine the trekking with the tour to Lalibela, a small isolated village set in the mountains of Lasta, popularly known for its rock-hewn churches. According to the legend, King Lalibela, during his exile in Jerusalem, was inspired to create “a new Jerusalem” and thus he built the churches with the help of angels. This magical town in the Ethiopian highlands is not just the home to the iconic World Heritage Site by UNESCO but a humble and stress-free spot.
