Ethiopia – Through My Lens – The Simien Mountains

Howdy all. Another selection of photos for you, basically a selection of photos of my trek in Ethiopia’s Simien Mountains. We began in Debark, took a minibus to Sanakabar Camp at the start of the first day, loaded up donkeys there and began the trek. We averaged around 20km a day, staying at three camps. The final day we hiked from Sankabar back to Debark. It was an incredible challenge, but it was four of the most rewarding days of my life. I hope you enjoy!
