One of the Must Sees

Lalibella is an amazing place. I have always wanted to go there as I have heard so much about it. Seeing pictures of those medieval places, I was not sure how I would feel about the place. I have to say I really enjoyed the place immensely.

Lalibella is set perched top of a hill (actually mountain rage) so it feels much cooler than even Addis. People literally live on hills - not flat area. The surrounding green hills are impressive sights. If it had been located outside of Ethiopia, thais place would be a paradise for trekkers. As it is very few people know of Lalibella and it is a difficult place to reach. You need two days from Addis, one day from Gonder/Bahir Dar if you were to drive.

For me it is one of the must see places in the world.

The village

The village itself is slightly different from rest of Ethiopia - with two stories round cottages(Godjos / Tuklas).
