4 Days - Simien Mountains National Parks

The Semien Mountains, rightly known as the “Roof of Africa”, is among some of the natural wonders of the world. With its breath taking scenic beauty and endemic wild life like the Gelada Baboon, Ibex and Mountain Nyala, it is an ideal place for easy as well as serious hikers and mountain climbers.


Day 1: Arrival and Domestic Flight to Gondar - Sankaber
Depart early in the morning from Gondar (7am at the latest), driving to Sankober. We will stop along the way at Debark to handle park fees, etc. We will drop you near to Buyit Ras for a 3-4 hour hike to Sankober, which passes close to the escarpment edge. Nearing Sankober, you will have beautiful views on both sides of the escarpment ridge and where you will likely see the endemic Gelada baboons. In Sankober, you will be met with your supplies. Overnight camping in Sankober.

Day 2: Sankaber - Geech
From Sankober, depart into a valley, through which the Wazla (or Koba) River runs. (This river is often dry). Coming out of the valley you will have views of the Jinbar River waterfalls falling into the Geech Abyss. Continuing along, you will cross the Jinbar River and ascend into the village of Geech. Total trekking time: 4-5 hours

Day 3: Geech - Imet Gogo - Chenek
After an early breakfast, depart from Geech to the peak of Imet Gogo at 3926m. Here you’ll have spectacular views over the lowlands – one of the highlights of the trip. As you continue to Chenek, you will pass Korbete Metia, a solid rock wall which opens up exposing beautiful views over the lowlands and the escarpment. This is also a good place for spotting lammergeyers. Overnight camping in Chenek. Total trekking time: 7 – 9 hours

Day 4: Chenek - Bwahit - Gondar
From Chenek, continue east up a valley to Bwahit Peak, overlooking the camp from where you just came. After the visit, return to camp and depart for Gondar for overnight (hotel).
