In some places rain has eroded the more recent rocks, exposing the original rocks, nowhere is this more prominent and stunning-than in Ethiopia’s northern Simien region. Subsequent erosion of this volcanic core has produced the dramatic highs and lows of the simians: deep precipices and gorges, tall pinnacles of jagged rock, and weird, withered landscapes.
The region includes many summits above 4,000 meters (13,000 feet), and culminates in the highest point in Ethiopia, Ras Dashen, which at 4,543 meters (14,901 feet), is also Africa’s fourth highest mountain.
It is not a very difficult mountain to climb and can be reached by traveling through the Simien Mountains national Park. For more on this tour visit tour programs or contact us.
