Overview

Title: Monasteries of Lake Tana

Tour Code: TST 2004

Duration: 5 nights and 4 days

Included visits/activities

Omo Valley is one of the few remaining places in the world where genuine tribal life is exhibited. Take a look at the following suggested tour itineraries; please note you can always ask for a program that exactly fits into your time and interest.

A morning flight to the young, fast growing city of Bahirdar . Up on arrival you will drive to the Blue Nile fall. This fall, now a days, is becoming a disappointment to tourists because the electric dam recently built has taken away three fourth of the waterfall. So in dry seasons expect to find only one fourth of the fall. If you are interested to see the fall in its full might, you have no choice but to come between June and September. Bahirdar market is particularly interesting. You will see the basketry, cereals, and spices that you will find interesting. You will end the first night by going to a hill top where you will have a chance to see as the sun sets , the source of the Blue Nile and an over view of the city of Bahirdar . The second day will fully be devoted for a boat trip to some monasteries of Lake Tana . On these Islands, you will find many old and interesting paintings plus artifacts once belonging to kings and queens.
