A flight to Lalibela will take you to the city of the famous group of Rock hewn churches. Only in the city of Lalibela you will see about eleven rock churches organized in to groups of three. About these churches, it is said that “their towering edifices seem to be of super human creation in scale, workmanship and concept.” In addition to these churches you will have a chance to visit Asheton Maran - found in the out skirt of the city at about 3000 meters altitude. It has very rewarding scenery. You can choose to walk or take a mule. Plus the church of Nakuteleab –another church out side of the city –will be pert of this visit.

Remark

If you have one more day, you can drive about 40 KMS to the famous cave monastery-YIMREHANA KIRISTOS- fine example of late Axumite architecture.
