We spent two nights at the Hudad Lodge. It is a unique place - peaceful and beautiful. Rooms are in individual stone dwellings spread wide apart on a small plateau; comfortable beds with plenty of blankets, solar powered lamps and basic latrines 'en suite'. Good simple fare to eat, but they also manage to get bottles of soft drink and beer up there! Take warm clothing for the evenings. From the Hudad, we walked higher, to the Tesla Trekking Lodge (3500 m) and visited a hamlet for an authentic Ethiopian coffee ceremony. Our guide, Messay (+251 91 136 2323 - he's on WhatsApp) organised everything - from meeting at the airport, one night in Lalibela, a guide to the churches, transport part of the way up the Hudad and trekking the rest of the way. He stayed with us and took us out during our day at the lodge. He was a fount of local knowledge and sensitive to our needs (including sea level physiology suddenly exposed to 3000 m altitude!). Very highly recommended.…
A great lodge for a true getaway. The scenery is simply spectacular throughout the entire property, given it sits very high on a small plateau. Baboons abound and make for quite the experience when having a morning coffee or evening tea. Hike in if you can! The altitude hike is challenging but well worth it. A quiet property with no running water or heat, some electricity provided by solar but it didn't last long. Come prepared (warm clothes, small flashlight, CAMERA!) and you'll leave very satisfied that you chose to stay here.

I spent 3 nights in Hudad Lodge and feel like a new man! This is the most tranquil and beautiful place I have ever stayed... Truly breathtaking. You can see baboons whenever you want and get really close to them... The views are incredible... The people are lovely... I was treated to evening fires, foot massages and hot water bottles that kept me feeling comfortable and refreshed. There is a special vibe about this place... I would love to return! Also recommended for breathtaking walks along the mountains. Biset was the main staff member who helped me and I am very grateful for his help. Thank you!
The location is unbeatable spectacular, staff super friendly, food is also good! all in all an incredible experience that is so worth it even if you just do it in a day-trip from Lalibela, but I do recommend spending the night!
