Surma Trekking in the Omo Valley Ethiopia — 11 Days

    Willkommen auf der fantastischen "Historischen Route" Äthiopiens! Die großartigen Kulturen und Landschaften sind Ausdruck einer außergewöhnlichen Vergangenheit. Diese hat Spuren im Land, bei den Menschen und ihren Monumenten hinterlassen. 

    Äthiopien ist alt; alt jenseits der Vorstellungskraft – bis zur Entstehung der Menschheit. Es ist auch das Land der Königin von Saba, ein Ort legendärer Regenten, fabelhafter Königreiche und altertümlicher Geschichte. Die historische Route umfasst einige der bemerkenswertesten Sehenswürdigkeiten, unter denen vier von der UNESCO als Weltkulturerbe anerkannt wurden.

    Staunen Sie über die 2000 Jahre alten Stelen von Axum, die berühmten Felsenkirchen von Lalibela aus dem 12.Jahrhundert, die Schlösser von Gondar, die Inselklöster im Tana See, den Blauen Nil-Fall und nicht zuletzt über die überwältigenden Semien Berge.

    Die freundliche Bevölkerung trägt dazu bei, Rundreisen in Äthiopien zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis zu machen!
