A lot of history is here. This is at the top of a mountain where there's also a museum. There are locals there that are friendly.

Probably more correctly called Entoto Mountain, it rises up to 3,200 metres above Addis Ababa. It is covered in eucalyptus trees which were imported from Australia. (In fact most of Ethiopia seems to be covered by these Australian natives.) After winding up the mountain through some colourful villages which was great on a Sunday morning we came to St. Mary's...

Its a great place to go hiking and site seeing. Visiting the pace on a Sunday during the morning hours really hits the spot. Loved it!

The trip up the mountain is very scenic. You will see people carrying large bundles of eucalyptus. The church / museum tour was very informative. The guides at the church, love their faith and the building.

This was a great experience! I was lucky enough to have a family member available to drive me there. Really get a better idea about the everyday lives of some Ethiopians.

Nice place to see Addis from the top, passing main embassies, it is a cleaner and more quiet environment. Good area if you have the strength to climb it with your bicycle.

Entoto Hill offers spectacular views of the city and has Beautiful nature. All this is however overshadowed by the poor women and in particular very Young Girls that are forced to collect firewood and carry huge burdens on their backs all the way down the mountain...

If you are in Addis then definitely go to Entoto Hill. The views of the city are great, on the way and at the top. On the way, you also get to know a bit more about local life, especially how hard women work. The museum at the top is not so nicely kept, even though it charges far more... More
