The Roof of Africa
Simien Mountains

This massive high altitude plateau, dotted with gullies and pinnacles, offers some of the most rewarding treks in Africa. For the non-hikers, the scenery will leave you speechless, but the excitement of sitting among a group of Gelada monkeys and watching endangered Walia Ibex navigate the terrain is an experience of a lifetime. Whether you come for the landscapes and wildlife or for a multi-day trek, the Simien Mountains make a great companion to the north's historical circuit.
