ETHIOPIAN WONDERS – DRAMATIC LANDSCAPES OF EXTRAORDINARY CONTRASTS
Traveling across Ethiopia you experience great heights and plummeting depths unfolding at every awe-inspiring turn. From the majestic Afro-Alpine Simien Mountains and the softer Bale Mountains, both in the highlands, to the Danakil Depression – the lowest and the hottest place on earth.
For Ethiopia has peaks over 4000m, weird and wonderful geothermal features, hot springs, active volcanoes and huge salt beds but also lush rain forests and fertile farmlands, rolling savannah and cool underground caverns. And fast flowing rivers, stunning waterfalls and glistening lakes such as those dotting the rift valley.
