Although the village’s history is interesting it is now somewhat sad and disappointing and largely sells handcrafts.

Such a poor place. No more Jews in here, but only Christian Orthodox. Few houses and mainly little kids try to sell their handmade mud crafts. Few flags on the walls to remind that: Ethiopian Jews moved to Palestine to find better life. I talked to many locals and all confirmed that most of immigrants were not Jews, but used to name to find better life somewhere else.

This place was just a shell. From what I had read, it was an actual Jewish village, but it’s not. There are just a few sad huts and a very old round hut that they say is/was a synagogue. Not what we were hoping for!

the place itself has historical value, but only in what was. now it's a bunch of old huts, and like others have written, mainly a spot for hawkers to try and sell their wares. and the hawkers are kids and it's pretty sad. we didn't have any money on us yet so we didn't buy, but having said that it's a sad place and not worth going, afterwards i regretted that we didn't buy anything because they had nice things that were reasonably priced. many other places we went to like fasilides castle had souvenir stores with overpriced (it's all relative- $2 as opposed to $1!!) but i regretted not buying the carved wooden coffee cups or the sculptures which looked nice and were not expensive. one of the young women trying to sell us things said she is a medical student! might be just a story, but i wouldn't be surprised. even the educated of gondar struggle financially....

A stop here was included in my tour to the Simien Mtns. I think my guide was hoping I'd buy souvenirs, but I bought nothing. Actually, didn't buy any souvenirs anywhere in Ethiopia, as I thought the quality and workmanship were always inferior. The Falasha village isn't really worth the visit even if it's included in your Simiens tour.
