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.

    Dear Patrick, Thank you very much for taking your time to write your feedback, very important for us to improve our service! Sorry again for the driver in Addis being not on time at your hotel to take you to the airport, and the unfriendly driver in Gondar "who is not working with us anymore btw". Regarding the entrance fee for Lalibela and others; you are right I could have listed all what the price excludes, but I thought you would understand that anything not listed in the including section is excluded. That’s why i have told you couple of times to check the lists in the price INCLUDE so that we avoid future misunderstandings. Thanks again for choosing us for your 7 days tour! And we hope to have you with us on your another Ethiopian tour! With best regards Daniel
