Package Itinerary

The turning is to the right just at the far end of Debre Birhan. The road reaches the edge of the escarpment through a terraced landscape of fields with small villages dotted about. At about twelve kilometers after the turnoff, it is worth stopping and climbing to the escarpment from which one looks down over the Great Rift Valley across the desert to Awash station and beyond to the mountains if Hararge. Montane flora of great beauty and variety, and troops of gelada baboons sporting on the cliff edges makes this one of the more lovely walks. Ankober, is founded by Sahle Sillassie, and was Menilik’s capital before he moved to Entoto ar the beginning of the nineteenth century. On a small conical hill are the remains of Menilik’s palace and at its foot tow churches both containing interesting murals.
