A nice drive to Entoto to see how locals live and historical church and buildings around it. However, there are many people and children who want to sell something or service, which was annoying.

Entoto hill is one historic landmark in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, there is a wonderful backdrop on the way to this historic site which has a 9/11 tribute statue for both September 11 and the Ethiopian New year.

Beautiful trip up the mountain that shows the traditional female wood carriers is worth the journey for itself. Up the hill the St Mary Church looks like a perfect entrance for the Menelik palace: ethiopian king's residence until the enf of XIX century, with cows and goats all around. Not to be missed!

Spent some time traveling around Addis and decided to make our way up to Entoto Hill. It took about 20 minutes to get there from our hotel. The further you move away from the city centre the clearer the air. You gain some elevation as you bear your destination so make sure to stop along the way to get a... More

The church is one of the ancients churches in Addis. It offers a great view of Addis. Recommended to visit especially at dusk.

Even if you have to do this quickly, it's well worth a visit on a short stop in Addis. The view is great and you get a sense of history.

Addis Ababa is enclosed within the Entoto Mountain Chain rendering its reputation as secret Capital of Afirca. Toursis take their first glimpse of Addis Ababa only after succefully crossing the mountain chain before they discover its beautiful metropolis. The Entoto Hills make up the Entoto Mountain Chain on the north side. If you stand atop the mountain you are guranteed... More
