TRIP OVERVIEW

The Northern region of Tigray is the perfect scenario to enjoy an unforgettable trekking day along the sandstone ridges with astounding views through the Gheralta valley. Climbing up to the rock-hewn churches will take you back to the 4th century. On your way, you will witness age-old farming practices while surrounded by gelada baboons or birds of prey. Be enchanted by the beauty and serenity of this area owned by proud people about their history and culture.

The natural landscapes of the Gheralta Mountains are called by some travelers as the Ethiopian Arizona. We are engaging in a range of eco-tourism activities, the tour designed to offer you unique insight into Gheralta life.
