For very experienced trekking lovers

This journey will introduce you to the Simien National Park which will amaze you as much with its spectacular scenery as with the abundance and variety of its fauna and flora

Along the hiking trails, you will discover many endemic species such as the Walia Ibex, fox, Gelada baboon and some 180 species of birds throughout magnificent landscapes.

You will be accompanied by a cook who will prepare all your meals

To ensure the transport of all necessary equipment and baggage, mules will accompany you while you travel. They will also be of great help in case of fatigue.

We recommend this tour from November to March during the dry season.
