"Tigray's roads" Ethiopia Things to Do Tip by Saagar

Ethiopia Things to Do: 195 reviews and 492 photos


Maybe a transportation tip - but...?
When traveling in the northern part of Ethiopia the engineering works that has gone into road planning and construction never cease to amaze.
There are many serious ups and downs and the switch-backs are many and impressive.
One of the implications of this is slow travel and the occasional accident or huge truck with military or civilian load that gets stuck in a curve.

Directions: This particular photo is on the Adigrat-Aduwa stretch of road.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
