Hudad Lodge is truly one of the nicest places we've stayed on our Ethiopia trip. The climb to the lodge is an experience: First, it takes about 20 minutes by car to the outskirts of Lalibela. Then there is a climb of about one hour to the lodge. The best thing about the lodge is the place itself: on a plateau up in the mountains. The view is fantastic and a huge group of baboons regularly visits the place. The interior of the huts is simple. There is no electricity and no running water, but that does not bother. The service of the lodge-owners is fantastic. It is great that the guests have dinner together on an open fire. We had an excellent guide that we can only recommend: Temesgen Tsehaynew (mobile phone +251 922 628 198). With the help of the guide can be organized lovely walks.

I visited Hudad Lodge on 24/04 (only during the day) , with my guide: Mesfin. It was absolutely fantastic! Peaceful local people, pleasant wild animals, and of course breathtaking landscape! I really hope to go there again with my friends and stay there for at least one night!

I spent two nights with my family in hudad. I found the location one of the most amazing I saw in my life bongalows are distanced on a cliff overlooking an amazing surrounding. I didn't give the excellency as in my opinion the restaurant should be with a real fireplace nice tables and more windy proof the hot Shower could be top down with an easy gravity system. The guides were excellent as the food. I really will advise all my friends in addis to spend here one night

I was very keen to do some walking in the hills whilst in the area and the Hudad was the perfect base. Getting there itself is a beautiful hike to be savoured. As well as stunning views and lots of nature you will pass local folk using the path to get to small villages, herd animals and take things to market.
Once at the Hudad you will quickly realise your efforts getting there are well worth it - the location is spectacular and very special.
I spent the following day hiking further up into the hills and returning to the Hudad in the late afternoon, but the grounds, views and wildlife are quite enough to justify going no further.

This is not a place for Western luxury or material goods. Leave all that stuff behind in town, along with your mental "baggage" and worries - a minute in the Hudad will show you that you don't need any of it and give you total peace of mind.

Hudad lodge is awesome! The walk up the mountain is stunning, the location is fantastic, and the night skies up there unsurpassable. The rooms are clean, lots of warm blankets and hot water bottles in the beds, even warm clothes to wear in the evening. The staff are lovely, they bring you tea and coffee when you arrive, wash your feet, bring hot water for a wash in the morning and really look after you. The food is good, plenty of beer, and even baboons to observe on the plateau. I loved the whole experience of going up to Hudud and would highly recomment it. you do have to be a bit fit as its 2 hours up, but a donkey will carry your gear up.

Room Tip: all the stone huts are cool.
