Nechisar National Park Reviews & Ratings
This park is a highlight of Arba Minch and should not be missed! You can no longer just walk in - a paid guide is required, as is an entry fee and an armed escort. Most tour guides try to limit your visit to an hour or so, although nature lovers could easily spend several hours. While there is an area where swimming/bathing is possible, it is not advisable. In addition, note that the 40 springs are now just PVC pipes protruding from the dirt.
