Debark is a very dusty and sleepy place and the only reason to stop there is for Simien mountains. However I found interesting photo options in the local market.
You also have to book a seat in the morning bus the day before and insist that the Station Manager make a call to Gondar in front of you. If you don't do this, you will have to wake up early and try to convince him to find a place for you, which you will fight hard to get or tip the Manager, if you can find him sober....
The best thing about Debark is the view from the bus when you are leaving, going north to Aksum. The wonderful views of Simien Mountains and the valley are a compensation for the nothingness of Debark...
