- Enthralling introduction to Ethiopian Highlands culture
- Sustainable tourism activities help community and environment
The best trip of our travels to date. This was such a special, humbling experience. I definitely recommend paying a bit more to stay overnight in the homestay. It would not have been half as special otherwise.
Lalibela is one of the most significant spiritual sites in Ethiopia, and a very popular tourist destination, but this Lalibela hiking tour offers something a little bit special. With a professional guide leading the way, you’ll head out on a one-day trek into the stunning Lasta mountains, to engage with local communities and wildlife, for a series of memorable activities. Enjoy welcoming interactions with highland farmers as you learn about their ways of life, spectacular views over the landscape and city, and the chance to get up-close with Ethiopian wolves, bearded vultures and Gelada baboons.
You might visit a working mountain monastery, a church carved into rock, or a local school. You can take part in a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony, and learn about this area’s unique and outstanding natural environment. Itineraries can be customised to your interests, and for those wanting a truly immersive trek there is also the option to pay a supplement and stay overnight in the mountains. With convenient transfers from central hotels, and a friendly, knowledgeable guide, this Lalibela gift experience makes for a fun-packed, active and unforgettable day out!
