Simien Mountains National Park

Simien Mountains National Park  is the main destination of Peoples who wants to visit and have a tour experience in Ethiopia.Trekking Simien Mountain is the most amazing thing you have to Experience in Ethiopia.

The Simien Mountain massif is a broad plateau, cut off to the north and west by an enormous single crag over 60 kilometers long. To the south, the tableland slopes gently down to 2,200 meters, divided by gorges 1,000 meters deep which can take more than two days to cross. Insufficient geological time has elapsed to smooth the contours of the crags and buttresses of hardened basalt.

Within this spectacular splendor live the Walia (Abyssinian) ibex, Simien red fox and Gelada baboon – all endemic to Ethiopia – as well as the Hamadryas baboon, klipspringer and bushbuck. Birds such as the lammergeyer, augur buzzard, Verreaux’s eagle, kestrel and falcon also soar above this mountain retreat.

Parcel mountain national park is one of the biggest Afro-Alpine natural surroundings in Africa. It offers guests with chances of mountaineering, horse trekking, grand drive, and event to see some of Ethiopian endemic vertebrates.
