Ethiopia Mountain Tour

The Simien highlands of northern Ethiopia form one of the major mountain massifs in Africa. A highlight is the ascent to the summit of Ras Dashen - Ethiopia's highest peak and the fifth highest on the continent. As we trek through this isolated region we admire the spectacular scenery of rocky plateaux, spires, mesas and deep gorges.

Tour Highlights

  • Simien Mountains: trek one of Africa's most spectacular and least visited mountain ranges in Africa.
  • Ras Dashen: climb Ethiopia's highest peak at 4543m.
  • Camping: enjoy wild camping in stunning locations.
  • Gondar: discover the medieval Fasilidas Castle and Debre Berhan Church.
