simien mountain tour (3 days)

About simien mountain

Simien Mountains allows you to witness amazing views of the landscape, and potentially the opportunity to view the endemic Gelada Baboons or the “bleeding heart baboon”.

The dramatic skyline of peaks and jagged volcanic plugs which tower over the highland plateaux of the Simien Mountains compete with rugged gorges and deep gullies to form what is one of the most awe-inspiring landscapes in Africa. As we trek through this distant mountain range we pass small hamlets  where villagers eke out an existence from the limited arable land. We may come across large troops of Gelada Baboons foraging on the escarpment; and, with luck, spot Walia Ibex and Ethiopian wolves.

Trip Itinerary

Day 1

Gondar to Sankaber

You start early morning from Gondar to Debark. In Debark you will contact with the park office and receive a scout and guide then drive into the park to arrive at Sankaber. You can either drive all the way in to Sankaber or have the car drop you off near Buyit Ras for a short hike. If you choose to hike in you can enjoy beautiful views of the landscape and the endless mountain ridges, and you will see some Gelada Baboons. When you arrive in Sankaber you will be met with your supplies. Sankaber will be the first  campsite on your trip.

Day 2

Sankaber to Geech Camp

From Sankaber you will begin hiking following the ridge and extend upto the foothills 800m down. From the ridge you will descend down into the valley and be able to view the Jinbar River plunging into the Geech Abyss. After some time at the waterfall you will continue on to Geech village where you will find your second campsite.

Day 3

Geech to Ambaras

Total Hike time is about 6-7 hours. All will love the Geech to Ambaras route which is the most magnificent hike the simiens have to offer. Here you will pass through Imet Gogo and you reach an altitude of 3,926m and have an unique opportunity to view the amazing landscape from 360 degrees. In this point you can see the canyon below, distant ridges, and view the seemingly never ending valleys. After the lunch you hike the Ambaras region and after that you will be taken back to Debark/Gondar by a car.
