It is hard to believe - but Facebook just reminded me that a year ago I was on my trek in the Simean Mountains. It was a life changing experience. Simean View with Bewketu/Bocata was the perfect tour organizer. I always felt safe and that someone was watching out for me to make sure I was happy and everything was perfect. It is so hard to think that the whole industry is in a standstill. When it comes back - I highly recommend planning your trip with Simean View. It was so terrific that I did a second trip with Simean View - this time in the South to see some of the tribes. That was another out of the works trip.

Day 1- Drive from Gondar to Debark where the park office is found where you collect a local guide, scout and pay for park fee then drive further 30 kms inside the park and drop off you guys in the car and you will walk with the guide and scout through the trekking pather for 4 hours finally over night at Sankaber camp. Day 2 - from Sankaber to Gich Via the spect acular view of the jimbar water falls  and Gich village the total walk takes about 5 to 6 hours besides after walking 4 hours you will have a picnic lunch at jmbar hill, at the end over night at Gich camp. Day 3 - you walk from Gich to Chenek Via the sttuning view point of Imitgogo and Inatye (both nearly 4000m above sea level) the walk takes about 8 to 9 hours finally over night at Chenek camp. Day 4 from Chenk camp to Buahit which is the 2nd highest peak in the simen mountains next to Rasdashen (4200m) about 4 hours walk from the camp, it is also the best place to watch the walia ibex (the endemic mammal) only found in the simen mountains and walk back to the camp and the car will pick you up and drive you back to gonder so you will be in gonder in the evening around 5 pm then straight drive you to airport.. Hellow, me and my boyfriend wanted to have a trip in the Simien so we talked with Bukata and he send us this program. Bukata have his one agency: SIMIEN VIEW tour and travel. that was the plan of our trip and it was amazing. the staff took care of us (we are a couple 22 years old). we ate wonderful food everyday. our guid name is Solomon - one of the best!!! we tald him that we like very much Ingera and so he suprise us with dinner with Ingera. also he know a lot and we learn a lot from him. His english was great. when we got to the highst point i had a high sick and he knew exactly how to help me and calm me down. we had a wonderful time and we suggest to talk with Bukata about your next trip in the Simien. +251970922523 & email: bewketu200b@yahoo.com SIMIEN VIEW tour and travel.

We had an amazing trip organized by Bewketu, that we met directly at the Gondar airport. We wanted to have a autonomous (with our own food and camping material) and adventurous 3 days trip, Bewketu took care of every detail in a really quick time. The driver Koucho was also nice, kind and professional. His knowledge, leadership,sensitive to his customer’s need was important for us. The scout also was kind. Unfortunately, Mesge, our guide in the track was not phenomenal (he was working for the national Siemen’s park and not directly for Bewketu).. more interested by business than customer’s need, and could be really annoying sometimes. Besides that, everything was well organized so we had a good time. My brother and I already miss the views !

This was the best organized trip we took in Ethiopia. Every stage was well-thought out, with a lot of respect for the time of the travelers. This is not to be taken for granted in Ethiopia, we were on other tours where many hours were wasted while the tour organizers got their act together. In this tour even the food surpassed expectations! We didn't take them on are trip to Danakil but I wish we had. The Simien mountains are in general a world-class destination. On the last day we chose to follow the monkeys instead of climbing the last peak. Great decision, they should make this an official option!
