In the morning, latest around 7 you will meet your guide either at your hotel or the Highland Eco Trekking office.
It is actually only a very short walk out of town, 2 minutes after leaving the office you are already above Lalibela.
in around 3400 meters height you will reach the still working mountain monastery called ASHETEN MARYAM.
After this break your way brings you up even deeper into the highlands.
You now soon arrive at AD MEDHANE ALEM (ATABKIT), a big plateau overlooking Lalibela. Here your will have your lunch and a well-deserved long break- you are now at around 3600meters!
You will continue to walk towards the AD MEDHANE ALEM VILLAGE, NEAR ASTABIR, your 'home' for tonight.
After breakfast you will gather your things and the walk towards Lalibela starts- here and there you will have a stop to enjoy the views or the animals.
Town will be reached around 4-ish in the afternoon.
If you would like to explore the highlands on a mule or horse back- no problem! Please ask us for availability and prices.
