Simien Mountains

Climb to the roof of Africa

The Simien Mountains are considered Ethiopia’s most impressive national park where adventure seekers find the country’s highest peak Ras Dashen (4,620m). The famous mountain range, just north of Gondar, is home to Ethiopia’s big three endemic species: Gelada Baboon, Walia Ibex, and the Simien Fox. After two days in Gondar, customize your itinerary with a series of day hikes or set off on a multi-day backpacking tour that combines dramatic landscapes, local culture, and strange animals. Both hikers and passengers can reach the high camp of Chennok, where you walk through herds of the passive Gelada baboons and eavesdrop on their squeaky conversations. Then watch the sunset over the afroalpine
landscape before tucking in for a cold night. Experienced hikers looking for a challenging trek at higher altitudes can opt to hike Ras Dashen and stand on top of Ethiopia. Every tour includes a park
scout and a mountain guide. We also offer camping gear, cooks, and mules, if needed.
