Trekking

Duration - 7 Days and 8 Nights

Transportation - surface


 



Day 1


Depart early in the morning from Gondar (7am at the latest), driving to Sankaber.  We will stop along the way to handle park fees, etc., and let you out near to Buyit Ras for a 3-4 hour hike to Sankaber, which passes close to the escarpment edge.  Nearing Sankaber, you will have beautiful views on both sides of the escarpment ridge and where you will likely see the endemic Gelada Baboons.  In Sankaber, you will be met with your supplies, and camp overnight.


Day 2


From Sankaber, we will depart into a valley, through which the Wazla (or Koba) River runs, though it is often dry.  Coming out of the valley you will have views of the Jinbar River Falls which drains into the Geech Abyss.  Continuing along, you will cross the Jinbar River and ascend into the village of Geech. 

 

Total trekking time: 4-5 hours


Day 3


After an early breakfast, we will depart from Geech to the peak of Imet Gogo at 3,926m.  Here you’ll have spectacular views over the lowlands – one highlight of the trip.  As you continue to Chenek, you will pass Korbete Metia, a solid rock wall which opens up exposing beautiful views over the lowlands and the escarpment.  This is also a good place for spotting Lammergeiers.  Overnight camp will be set up in Chenek. 

 

Total trekking time: 7 – 9 hours


Day 4


From Chenek, we continue east up a valley to Bwahit Peak,  boasting an elevation of 4.437m, which overlooks the camp from where you came. After crossing the Bwahit Pass, you come to a viewpoint offering wonderful views of the Mesheha River Valley offering the first glimpse of Ras Dashen.  From here, the path descends, passing through the village of Chiro Leba, and finally leads to the Mesheha River.  Across the river, you climb back up the valley to the village of Ambikwa, where you will camp overnight. 

 

Total trekking time: 6-8 hours


Day 5


Starting early, you will continue up the valley to the village of Mizma, after which you will have a steep ascent to a ridge crest overlooking a large valley.  The path then follows along the side of the valley, straight to Ras Dashen.  You will eventually reach a point where you will see three distinct buttresses.  The buttress on the left is the summit of Ras Dashen.  A pile of rocks at the top of the buttress marks the summit.  Afterwards, you return to Ambikwa for overnight camping. 

 

Total trekking time: 8-10 hours


Day 6


On this day, you return back to Chenek for overnight camping. 


Total trekking time: 6-8 hours


Day 7


Today will be transported out of the park, from Chenek back to Gondar.
