Ethiopia Tours, Travel & Backpacker Adventure
Ethiopia. Full of legendary tales and Indiana Jones style adventure. From seeing the first human, ‘Lucy’, a 3.3 million year old skeleton, who based on evolution is our first ancestor to stand upright on 2 legs, to standing on an overhang above a frothing lava lake in the hottest place on Earth, to feeding Hyenas from your mouth, to touring through Ethiopia’s most incredible and oldest castle, the Royal Enclosure (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), or going on a adventure safari tour passing the incredible lakes of the Rift Valley, to seeing the ancient Lost Ark of the Covenant (Ethiopia’s Holy Grail)-closely guarded by sacred priests, or Fasiladas bath, an ancient outdoor bath as large as a pool, with stunning beauty and snakelike roots enveloping it. Ethiopia has more than enough tours to satisfy the hunger of an adventure traveler!
Travelers can adventure to the Danakil Depression, the hottest place on earth, with an average temperature of 35 degrees! Travelers have said it averaged around 42 degrees during the day in ‘cold season’! Adventure through ancient tombs with self-locking stones and secret passageways-there is rumour that there is a hidden tunnel leading to Arabia! By torchlight, adventure through a maze of enormous ancient Lalibela churches that are carved directly into rock, according to legend with the assistance of angels, and filled with ancient frescoes and murals. Adventure trek up the Simien Mountains, explore National Parks where you see Gelada Baboons and Ethiopian Wolves, tour through the mind-blowing painted ceilings of Debre Berhan Selassie-full of holy depictions and 104 winged Ethiopian cherubs. Travelers have said that no matter how many Ethiopian churches you have previously seen, you need to tour this one!
