Highs & Lows
Lalibela underground church was something out of the world. The Axoum site was also mesmerising.
The organized tour seems to increase inequalities between tourists and locals.
A discovery of Ethiopia's amazing cultural riches, starting with the capital, Addis Ababa, and the visit of the National Museum and its famous resident : Lucy. We continued with a visit to Bahar Dar and to all the main sites with monasteries and churches dating back centuries, such as Aksum and Lalibela. Then we went for a walk onto the Simien National Park and its breathtakingly beautiful landscapes, a sanctuary for wonderful wildlife.

Stay in Lalibela for a few days.
Long and light clothes.
