The word is out - Ethiopia has hidden depths and soaring heights.
If you like to blaze a trail then a holiday to Ethiopia is for you. Many potential visitors don't realise what a treasure trove of cultural and natural wonders is waiting in this East African gem of a destination. Think serrated peaks over 4,000 metres high, sheer cliffs patrolled by wheeling lammergeiers, green and fertile valleys, and ancient churches chipped out of the bedrock. Not only is Ethiopia a relatively unknown and undiscovered destination, it is also one with a rich patchwork of rituals and customs, ethnicities and languages, mountains and lakes, flora and fauna. This is a richly rewarding place to travel, packed with breathtaking monuments created by both man and nature.
