Simien Mountains National Park, Amhara Region

#1 of 40 in Parks in Ethiopia
Must see · World heritage site · National Park · Nature / Park
One of the first places designated a World Heritage Site, Simien Mountains National Park includes dramatic vistas and rare wildlife. Deep valleys sharply rise in mountain peaks--including the highest point in Ethiopia--while jagged precipices drop down past steep ridges to vast undulating plains. The most famous of the park's endangered wildlife is its singular walia ibex, often seen perched on the seemingly vertical cliff faces: the park is their only known habitat. Trekking here requires some stamina, with hikes varying in length from a day to two weeks. All trips must be accompanied by a trained park scout, in efforts to help preserve this delicate environment.
