Giant Lobelia on the 'Rooftop of Africa' 🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳Ethiopia Bale Mountains Adventure
05-13 October 2019 (9-days)
The Sanetti Plateau in the Bale Mountains, averaging 4000m in altitude, it is the highest plateau on the continent. On this incredible adventure we will walk across it, viewing its beautiful and exotic wildlife including Mountain Nyala, Ethiopian Red Wolf, impala, warthogs and Colobus Monkeys; meeting the nomadic herders grazing their flocks on the plateau and learning about their culture. We end with drive down into an ancient forest filled with waterfalls in this part of Ethiopia so little explored by the outside world.
Either horse-riding or trekking, accompanied by our team of local guides, porters and horses, and often above the cloud-line; we will traverse this region of immense landscapes and breath-taking natural beauty. Highlights include the beautiful lake Gebreguracha, the otherworldly, mind-bending ‘stone forest’ and the opportunity to hike up Ethiopia’s second highest summit, Mt. Tuludimtu (4389m). On our drive down to the ancient lichen-covered Harenna Forest, where waterfalls plummet between bamboo groves, we will visit villages where the local people live in thatched houses, and whose way of life has not changed for a millennium. This is travel in its purest form. balemountains
