What to expect
  • The dramatic scenery view of Blue Nile Gorge, Historical monastery of Debrelibanos & Jama valley. The magnificent view of the gorge of Blue Nile lies 200km north from Addis to Bahrdar road over the Entoto Mountain passing through the Sululta Plains. 85 % of the Nile Water originates in Ethiopia, pours out from Lake Tana. The road, after 200 km on the highland, it begins to make dramatic stretches down into the Blue Nile gorge, 1000m below, and this is the most spectacular scenery of the landscape of the area. It is really amazing how the great Nile erodes the rock and makes a marvelous landscape. The Gorge is at 1 km in-depth comparable in scale to the Grand Canyon of America. Next tour visit is the monastery of Debre Libanos monastery founded in the 13th century by Abuse Tekle Haymanot. Overlooking Jema River Gorge, a tributary of the Blue Nile, the monastery owns ecclesiastical, cultural and historical relics; we have also a chance to see birds and baboons. Below the monastery, there is a bridge which is called Portuguese bridge or Egg Bridge. Near by the Bridge a group of Chilada Baboon close encounter as well.
