The little known but dramatic and beautiful Simien Mountains in northern Ethiopia are one of Africa’s major massifs. At 4543 metres, the trekking peak of Ras Deshen is Ethiopia’s highest and Africa’s fifth highest mountain. UNESCO has recognised the Simien National Park as a World Heritage Site, due to its threatened endemic species and rare flora and fauna. 

Trekking routes through the Simien Mountains take you through a dramatic landscape of fertile plateaux, rocky peaks and precipitous gorges, formed by the erosion of the Ethiopian plateau over millions of years. This unique region is a refuge for endangered species such as the Walia ibex, native to the Simien Mountains, and also to the Simien wolf and gelada baboon. The birdlife is prolific too: there are over 800 species here, and many of them are indigenous.
