  • This trek takes you into the largest Afro-Alpine habitat in all of Africa, Bale Mountains National Park. It is a high-altitude plateau that is fragmented by numerous remarkable volcanic plugs and peaks, beautiful alpine lakes, and mountain streams that run down in the deep rocky gorges on their way to the lowlands. It is a haven for various endemic mammals including the African Wolf, Mountain Nyala, and many endemic birds.

This tour is a wonderful trekking opportunity for those who seek a unique trekking experience in the isolated mountains of Ethiopia. Trekking in the Bale Mountains gives the trekker the chance to interact with the local community and witness their culture and way of life.

The secluded Bale Mountains are some of the most unspoiled and exceptionally beautiful in the country. The peaks here rise more than 4000 meters, and Mount Tullu Deemtu, with an altitude of 4,377 meters above sea level, is the second-highest peak in Ethiopia.
