Glacial Lakes to Volcanic Peaks
Located 400km southeast of Addis Ababa, Bale Mountains National Park contains a spectacularly diverse landscape. The high altitude, afro-montane Sanetti Plateau rises to over 4,000m and includes the highest peak in the southern Ethiopia highlands. This undulating plateau is marked by numerous glacial lakes and swamps and surrounded by higher volcanic ridges and peaks. The southern slopes are covered by the lush and largely unexplored Harenna Forest.
Our itineraries include sites of cultural, historical and natural interest both en-route and nearby to the Bale Mountains National Park. All care has been taken to document accurate driving directions, although keep in mind that roads and road conditions may change.
