This was the highlight of my trip! We got on our mules outside of our hotel and rode up Asheten mountain. There is one stop you make halfway up the mountain. They ask you to buy soda for your mule guides, hats, and other handmade...More

One of the highlights of our 11 night historic route trip to Ethiopia at the end of July 2017 was the rock churches of Lalibela, in the Amhara region of northern Ethiopia. These are a group of eleven churches hewn from the living rock during...More

We found Lalibela a unique place in Africa with a very interesting history. The visit of 11 churches and the Asheton Mariyam monastery, spread over 3 mornings, was well guided by Ermiyas. We got all the stories and background of the site. We could take...More

I highly recommend visiting Lalibela to see the rock churches. It was amazing to see these monolithic rock churches dating back to the 12th and 13th century. If you can I recommend a two day stay in Lalibella as one day would be too short....More

Especially compared to the cost of entrance and the cost of private book-ahead guides, getting a guide here is worth it. My guide charged 350 birr per day but constantly tried to upsell me on more activities. I agreed to go to yimrehane christos monastery,...More
