Overview
What to Expect
DAY 1: GONDAR - SEMIEN MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK

Leave Gondar at 7:30 am and arrive Simien Mountains National Park after around 3 hours of driving. 

Once we are in the park, the car will drop us two hours before the first camp site of Sankaber. For two hours, hike along the cliff edge towards the campsite of Sankaber. Along the route, stop for a picnic lunch. Overnight camping in Sankaber

DAY 2: Sankaber-Geech

Hike about 5 to 6 hours from Sankaber to Geech. We will pass through a spectacular scenery that winds between the cliff edge and forests. Along the way we pass the 500 M high Jinbar waterfall and stop for lunch on the banks of the Jinbar river. We pass through Geech village where we can have coffee with a local family in their traditional tukul hut. This is a great way to glimpse the day to day life of the mountain people. Overnight Camping at Geech 

DAY 3: GEECH-CHENNEK

From Geech to Chennek camp takes around 7 to 8 hours. On the way we visit Imet Gogo, which offers a spectacular panoramic view of the whole of the Simien mountain range. Imet Gogo, at 3926 M, has incomparable 360 degree views of canyons, cliffs and valleys that look as if they go on forever. Overnight Camping at Chennek

DAY 4: CHENNEK-SONA

Today we will trek to Sona via Buwhit passing 4200 M. This is a good opportunity to spot the magnificent walia ibex as well as the endemic, but rare, Simien fox. Wonderful views along the way before we descend to Sona, which is renowned for its fantastic sunsets. Overnight Camping at Sona

DAY 5: SONA-MEKAREBYA

After trekking around 5 hours we will reach at Mekarebya, and it’s downhill almost all of the way.  As we are descending a lot, you notice the temperature go up. The vegetation also changes to that which you would have seen in the highlands. Overnight Camping at Mekarebya

DAY 6: MEKAREBYA-MULIT

From Mekarebya we will hike for about 5/6 hours to Mulit. This is an interesting hike where you will likely see vervet monkeys. We cross the Insya river a couple of times before a final steep hike to the campsite. Overnight Camping at Mulit

DAY 7: MULIT / ADIARKAY / GONDAR

From Mulit we make our way, mostly downhill, for 2.5 hours to Adiarkay. Once we reach the main road we’ll then start driving to Gondar. 

END OF THE TRIP.

I planned for short trip and went to Merkato, Mount entoto as was bored with routine work and need some family trip. Trip was good because Simien mountain helped us end to end. Everyone from family enjoyed a small vacation. Excellent Simien mountain.
