Hi to everybody,
I would like to share my experience of a three days trekking to the remote monastery of Gunda Gundo. For now is still a non touristic place. Me and my husband were there completely alone (with the guide). It’s an amazing place, with beautiful views, canyons and banana and orange gardens. The Irob people who live there are very friendly. The landscape is completely different of the other parts of Tigray. We spent there two nights, one in a tent and one in a local house. We had a bath in the river under thousands of stars and a lunch in an orange garden. Unfortunately the women can’t enter into the monastery, but the monks brings outside the walls the ancient manuscripts, so I was able to saw them. The trek was organized by the Gheralta Lodge for a honest price that include the first night in the lodge (very charming). Very recommended!
