Full description

85 % of the Nile Water is coming from Ethiopia and Lake Tana. The Magnificent view of blue Nile gorge, lies 224 kms north from Addis to Bahrdar road over the Entoto Mountains passing through the Sululta Plains. After 200kms through Highlands, you will begin to immerse yourself into stuning & dramatic surroundings : the Blue Nile Valley. How the great Nile erodes the rock and makes a marvelous landscape, will amaze you. The Gorge is 1 km depth and is comparable (in scale) to the Grand Canyon of U.S. Time for contemplation & meditation. Next we will discover the Monastery of Debre Libanos monastery, which was founded in the 13th century by Abune Tekle Haymanot. Overlooking Jema River Gorge, a tributary of the Blue Nile, the Monastery owns ecclesiastical, cultural and historical relics. I will share all what I know about it, until you stop me :-) We may have also a chance to see birds and baboons. Finally, we will also have a look around, and you may enjoy a stone bridge which is called Portuguese bridge or egg bridge. Can't wait to meet you :-) Note: if you're more than one, price will be lower as transportation is better shared amongst passangers

Amazing Tour Guide

"I loved having Yonas as our guide in Ethiopia. Although I had been there many times before, he suggested places to visit that were awesome. He knows Ethiopian history and culture and presents it in a way you can understand. If you hire Yonas you will have an amazing tour guide and gain a wonderful friend."
