ETHIOPIA- A LAND OF ORIGINS.

Ethiopia is the tenth largest country in Africa with a surface area of 1.2M Square Kilometers. It lies in eastern Africa, between the Equator and the Tropic of Cancer, in a region known as the Horn of Africa. Bordered by five countries, it is landlocked due to its separation from Eritrea.

We-Ethiopian have our own way of telling time: the first hour of the day corresponds with the rising of the sun and the last hour is around sunset. The day is divided into two parts, each lasting twelve hours. due to its location near the equator, Ethiopia allows nearly twelve hours sunlight during any season.

The Calendar is another unique feature-it has 13 months. Using the Julian Calendar, Ethiopia has twelve lunar months of thirty days, plus one month of five or six days, depending on the lap year. The Julian calendar began 7 years and 113 days after the Christian age, making the first day of the New Year September 11.

What to do in Ethiopia?

        Culture in Ethiopia

Ethiopia is the only African country never to have been fully colonized, resulting in a culture little-influenced by the West. It has its own alphabet, calendar and time zone, and this strongly religious country (the second-oldest Christian country in the world) also dictates regular fasting days on which you’ll find only vegetarian or vegan food. When thinking of Ethiopian culture, though, many people think of the tribes along the Omo Valley, each with their own distinctive traditions. The Omo tribes continue to maintain their unique cultures and languages under pressure from displacement and increasing interest from tourists.

      Walking holidays in Ethiopia

Ethiopia walking holidays take you to trails that are refreshingly crowd-free and guides capable of introducing you to communities away from the main destinations. Most Ethiopia trekking is done in the north of the country, especially in the Simien Mountains National Park, where you can encounter Gelada baboons in the grasslands and rare Walia ibex. You can also explore the Bale Mountains south of Addis Ababa. The best time for walking is between October (September in the Simien Mountains) and January, and you can choose from small group or tailor-made trips.

     Northern Circuit


The Northern Circuit is the most popular – and most impressive – tourism route in Ethiopia. It takes you from Bahir Dar on the shore of Lake Tana (said to be the source of the Blue Nile) to Gondar, Axum and the ancient underground churches of Lalibela. Small group and tailor made trips normally travel in a clockwise direction, with internal flights from Addis Ababa. They last for around two weeks, so that you can get the most from a tour with some long distances involved. You can also include guided trekking in the Simien Mountains between Gondar and Axum.
