Axum Off The Beaten Path: 14 reviews and 16 photos

  View towards the Eritrean mountains

There is a nice little walk possible. Leave Aksum from the main stelae field and take the road passing by the Mai Shum and later the Trilingual Tablet to King Kaleb`s Palace. Its about half an hour to here. From the remains of the palace its another half an hour walk to the top of the mountain known as Debre Katin where the Pantaleon Monastery can be visited.

There is a path going down to Aksum which ends up near the Africa Hotel so you don´t need to walk back the same way!
