  1. Introduction
  1. Day 1: Journey begins in Addis Ababa 
  2. Day 2: Addis Ababa to Lalibela
  3. Day 3: Asheton Maryam Monastery
  4. We enjoy another day in Lalibela to appreciate it fully – today heading out of town to walk up to the remote Asheton Maryam Monastery.  It is probably the highest in Ethiopia, up at 4000m, and it’s simple, unadorned construction and interior is magnificently backdropped by jaw dropping views.
  5. Day 4: Lalibela to Gheralta Mountains
  6. It is a full day’s drive from Lalibela to the Gheralta Mountains so we take a short flight to the ancient city of Axum to view its 4th Century, 24m tall stele and explore the market and town. After lunch we have a 2hr drive to Gheralta, where our first night will be spent in a lodge with fantastic vistas of the mountain formations. We can explore the surrounding area and town before settling in to a delicious dinner prepared by the lodge.
  7. Day 5: Gheralta to giant sycamore tree camp
  8. Our trek begins with a steep climb to the delightful Abuna Abraham rock church, which requires some effort in order to reach it; the views both inside and out always making the excursion worth it however. Tonight we will camp under the biggest sycamore tree in the region, a wonderful spot where many of the local exotic birds flock to nest in its branches.
  9. Day 6: Sycamore tree to Agoza camp
  10. Day 7: Agoza to Koraro camp
  11. Day 8: Journey ends in Addis Ababa
  12. Day 9: Fly out from Addis Ababa

    Travelling with YellowWood is a true adventure. Their expertly crafted itineraries get under the skin of a destination, escaping the tourist trail and really getting to the heart and soul of a place and its people.
