Simien Mountains - One day trek
We depart early from the historical town of Gondar and drive around 2.5 hours on a tarred, comfortable road to Debark where we get permission to enter Simien National Park at the park head office. We then drive 22km further to the Simien Lodge, within the national park. From here we walk about 2 or 3 hours, stopping often to admire the amazing views of the escarpment, take photos and see the friendly gelada baboons which are endemic to the area. We will also see a variety of plants and flowers. We will stop for lunch at one of the stunning viewpoints before returning to the vehicle to drive back to Gondar.
