Full description
• Day one: Gondar – Debark – Sankaber  Your Ethiopian trekking adventure begins here with a two-hour drive to Debark, the entrance to Simien Mountains National Park. Get all the formalities and permits for visiting the famous Simien Mountains sorted before entering the park. Meet your personal cook and the scouts who will assist you throughout the tour, and collect your camping gear.  Continue on a one-hour drive on a rough road to Sankaber for your first hike of two to three hours to assist with the acclimatization process. The first of many amazing views of the dramatic mountain range is sure to amaze you. Settle in for an overnight in the Sankaber camp.

Hike to Geech in five to six hours (11,800 feet, 8 miles), spotting many gelada baboons, klipspringer, and bushbuck on the way. Walk along the escarpment before dropping down for impressive views. Eagles, vultures, and ravens are commonly seen here. On day two you’ll also pass by Genbar Falls, an incredible 1,640-foot sheer drop of water. In the evening, climb Mount Kedadit (12,335 feet) for an unforgettable sunset. Overnight at the Geech campsite.
