Ethiopia – Through My Lens – Bahir Dar, Blue Nile Falls and Lake Tana

Hi all – this is my final ‘Through My Lens’ for Ethiopia. Last week I shared my photos from the Simien Mountains. This week I’ve headed south to Bahir Dar. Bahir Dar is a town on the shores of Lake Tana, and the jumping off point for visiting the Blue Nile Falls. It was done in an afternoon by car, we needed to cross the river by boat and walk around 800 metres through rural land to get to the falls.

A boat on Lake Tana is pretty much compulsory for visitors, and I took one to the Zege Peninsula. It’s beautiful and green and there is a church there. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by! May the Journey Never End!
