Lasta Mountains: Highland Eco Trekking Tour in Lalibela

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Starting early in the morning the hike with an English- speaking, local guide goes right up, deep into the beautiful Lasta mountains above Lalibela, providing vast, fantastic views over the land. The different hikes can be combined with visiting the still working mountain monastery Asheten Maryam or the beautiful cave church Yemrehane Kristos as well as the still not often discovered, deep in the woods church Emekina Medhane Alem. Clear highlight of all tours is the personal interaction with the Ethiopian Highlander farmers, being able to take part in their daily activities and lending a hand with all, even the possibility to teach in the mountain school. Of course always included is the famous and very special Ethiopian coffee ceremony.

    Food and bottled water is taken care of, for longer treks there will be a donkey for transporting things, as well as an own cook coming.

    Up on the plateau called Abune Yoseph hordes of Gelada Baboons are running freely, it is also one of the best places in Ethiopia for spotting many different birds from eagles to bearded vultures and many more and, not to be forgotten: the Ethiopian Wolf lives up here too.

    So, altogether it is a great combinations of exploring the beauty of the Ethiopian landscape like on top of the world with learning about the real Ethiopian culture from the people itself and seeing absolutely rare animals. The great thing about these tours is also the starting point right in Lalibela.
