Trip Info

Northern Ethiopia holds the greatest attraction for visitors as one of the country’s richest regions for culture, history and natural splendor.

The Historic Route takes in the medieval city of Gondar, with more castles, palaces and churches than any other city in Africa; and the ancient capital of the Queen of Sheba and Ethiopia’s holiest city, Axum, where the original Ark of the Covenant containing the Ten Commandments is said to rest. Ethiopia’s top attraction, however, is undoubtedly the 13th-century rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, among the most incredible man-made structures in the world, revered and renowned among Ethiopians and foreigners alike and the venue for some of the most famous religious festivals in Ethiopia. Taking 24 years to complete, the astounding rock churches are believed to have been created with the help of angels.
