A group of 5 of us are just back from a 3 day Tesfa trek in Tigray, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. The scenery, people, wildlife are just out of this world. We walked from high plateaus to valleys that could have been a scene from another time, with cattle and donkeys threshing the crops, a village girl bringing us fruit to eat and everyone with a smile and a genuine interaction.
You just don’t get this experience on the regular tourist trail. These holidays are so special, I want to tell everyone to go. They benefit the local people ,who are poor, and need the extra income. But it is us who gain most , it is an experience that takes you right back down to earth. Literally. Anne O’Callaghan, Dec 2015
