Trek through Tigray mountains and villages, see ancient rockhewn churches and spend one night in Gheralta lodge

Experience the beauty and serenity of the Mountains of Eastern Tigray. Explore the Agame Massif, a much less visited mountain block just north of Gheralta.  Walk along the sandstone ridges enjoying spectacular views and through intensely farmed valleys. See Gelada Baboons, birds of prey, age-old farming practices. You will be hosted by the local people,  a people with a fierce pride in their own special history and culture. On the walk you will come across several lovely rock hewn churches (there is also a built up church in the style of Debre Damo on a ledge in the cliff). The walking can be arranged to be moderate or tougher, depending on your preference. End your trip with a night at one of the beautiful lodges in the area and see a couple of the more visited rock churches of Tigray before returning to the hussle and bussle of Addis Ababa!
