semien mountain one of nature and adventure tour is semien mountain.The Semien mountain in northern Ethiopia, encompassing eastern Gondar, is a natural wonder with a rich history dating back to a thousand years ago when ancient gods played chess with the crags. The area features emerald knights, sapphire-crowned kings, and a chessboard with bishops’ miters cut in lapis lazuli. The Semien highlands are one of Africa’s major massifs, with the highest point, Ras Dejen, at 4620 meters.

The Semien Mountains in Ethiopia are a national park due to its dramatic topography and unique botanical phenomena. The region is home to the Walia Ibex, a wild goat threatened by poaching. The Walia live on vertical cliff faces and narrow ledges, while the gelada, a primate-like hybrid, lives in restricted areas. Over fifty bird species are positively identified. Despite its unique climate, the region experiences temperatures below freezing at night and sunburn, making visitors prepared for warm days.

Ethiopian Rift Valley

rift valley

The Ethiopian Rift Valley is a system of down faulted troughs in the Afro-Arabic Rift system, extending approximately 6500 km in a north-south direction. It is a geological relic of the Earth’s crust’s critical weakening along two parallel faults, opening the world’s largest geological divide 2 million years ago. The valley features eight spectacular chains of lakes, formed during high rainfall in the quaternary era when much of the world was covered in ice.

During this time the northern four lakes; Ziway, Langano, Abyjata and Shalla were one and the southern two Abaya and Chamo were one. As the earth’s climate warmed in comparatively recent geological times the rift valley lakes receded leaving extensive deposits of sedimentary rocks

Bale Mountains National Park

The Bale Mountains, a high altitude plateau in Ethiopia, are characterized by Ethiopian Wolf volcanic plugs, peaks, alpine lakes, and rushing mountain streams. Divided into two major parts by the Harenna escarpment, they reach 2,500 meters above sea level.

The Bale Mountains have a high rainfall, damp, cloudy weather, and brilliant blue skies. The dry season, from November to February, can reach 30 degrees Celsius. The main peak area experiences temperatures between -6 and -15 degrees Celsius. The park’s meadows, stream banks, forest floor, and grasslands offer diverse vegetation.

The region offers a visually stunning view of the wild place, home to the endemic Mountain Nyala and the Ethiopian Wolf, a sight to behold.

The Ethiopian Wolf is unique to the Bale and Simien Mountains, feeding on rodents at higher altitudes. It hunts by standing still, listening, and pouncing when a rat emerges. Other mammals in the area include Menelik’s Bushbuck, Reedbuck, and monkeys. The Bale Mountains National Park features endemic birds, including fourteen in the area. Visitors should wear warm clothing and sturdy shoes for walking.
