Nevertheless, if you like a challenge and are lucky to be a man (sorry ladies, but you are not welcome here) you can climb up by rope to Debre Damo Monastery. The view from the top will make you speechless. On your way, you will witness age-old farming practices while surrounded by gelada baboons or birds of prey.

Be enchanted by the beauty and serenity of this area owned by proud people about their history and culture. Unfortunately, those suffering from vertigo may choose any other Historic tour .
