THE SIMIEN MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK

Simien-Location-Map‘Simien’ means ‘North’ in Amharic. Six hundred million years ago, the mountains were an enormous volcanic mass; rain and ice have carved deep fissures into them and rivers have continued the work of erosion, creating an incredible landscape, peaks and deep gorges. In the steep slopes may be seen the Walia Ibex of the Simien Mountains.

Apart from the wildlife experience, the Simien Mountains provide some of the most breath taking scenery in the world. That is probably the reason why UNESCO considers it a world heritage site. It is easily accessible from the historic towns of Gondar and Axum.

The park extends over the entire mountain mass of the Simien, the highest peak of which is Ras Dejen at 4430 m, the fourth highest mountain in Africa. Beside the Walia, other protected species found in the park such as, the rare Abyssinian fox and the Gelada baboon.
