Day trek to Simien Mountains

The chasmic valleys and towering peaks of Simien Mountains National Park are a beacon of wildlife conservation, sheltering rare species such as the Walia ibex and Simien fox. Though UNESCO-listed in 1978, the park remains off the beaten track, providing active sightseers an authentic glimpse of Ethiopia’s natural heritage.

This was a nice place to see the Fasilides castle. Took maybe over 40 minutes to see everything and take photos. Next time I would definitely do a tour with a guide but I went with a couple friends I met at the hostel I was staying. I definitely recommend to see this if you’re into historical places and history in general.

What a fortress! It was fascinating to hear how successive monarchs had added to the complex here. Funnily enough, much was familiar from European castle history, even though the two cultures would not have exchanged views on the best way to build such a structure. And if you've got a childish side like me, you can wander around thinking to yourself "for Gondor!" like Lord of the Rings...it truly is out of fantasy. Which goes to show that for all cultures differ, humanity is humanity and inspiration strikes in so many similar ways.

Was pleasantly surprised to find this well preserved ruin in the country. Definitely one of the highlights of the trip. Very easy to take a stroll around and a great place for pics.

Ethiopia is an incredible place and a visit to this country is not complete without a stop in Gondar to view its castles and churches. Our guide Sammie was incredible and he made sure everything was perfect for our group from photo angles to historical knowledge. I’m also going to review him on the Simien Mountains since he took us there too! Sammie is a special guy! Give him an email or call for the perfect guide!

Interesting place with very nice castles. But I felt unwelcome there because I was the only foreigner tourist in this days and some people who worked there discriminated me. It’s unacceptable having any people with this mentality working in a place like this specially if sponsored by UNESCO.
