Package Itinerary

Second and further away lies Mount Wuchacha the western slopes of which are covered in superb forest, the last of addis Ababa’s indigenous trees, giant junipers (the Ethiopian tid) and zigba (podocarpus gracilor). Mingled in with these two forest giants, some of which are over fpur hundred years old, are lush undergrowths of palms, and kosso. The track winds upwards to a delightful picnic spot, a level place between huge trees and the forest gradually thins out of wild roses and giant heath until it finally emerges at the actual rim of the crater valley. The forest itself was originally planted by king zer’a Ya’qob of shewa and was reserved as crown land in the old system. It is now a national park and the birds and animals which live there are protected. Among these the beautiful black and white colobus (gureza) is probably the most spectacular. Menelik’s bushbuck and duiker are concealed in the thick undergrowth.
