Package Itinerary

As you climb towards the pass, there is an interesting side trip along the edge of the escarpment, look out for a turning on the right which leads up and over one of the tunnels on the main road and thence along the edge overlooking what must be some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. The road continues to Mehal Meda. But there is no need for the casual visitor to go that far.

Even on the main road the views from the various vantage points are awe-inspiring. Here also live large troops of gelada baboons endemic to Ethiopia- with the dramatic “lions” mane of the adult males blowing in the wind. The air is chilly so a wind breaker is recommended. You can buy a woolen hat with a baboon hair tassel from the local shepherd boys, after passing through a series of tunnels; the road emerges on the far side of the pass and begins its descent to the market town of Debre Sina.
