overview

This unforgettable ten day challenge in Ethiopia takes us from the market town of Debark to the 4,533 m summit of Ras Dashen. Together we begin an exhilarating five days of trekking by making our way down into the Michotis Valley to the Jin Bahir River and back up to our camp in Geech. On our way to the Bwahit Pass (4,200m) we may spot the rare Gelada baboon and many impressive afro-alpine plants. Resting each night under canvas, we gain the energy to trek to the summit of Africa’s fourth largest mountain, Ras Dashen. Our last day is spent exploring Gondar’s Italian piazza and Royal Enclosure before having a celebratory meal together.

Once you register for our fully-inclusive trek through Ethiopia you will be provided with a challenge pack with all essential information on for your hike. If you are raising money for a charity, Action Challenge will sort out all formalities for you, as well as offer you pre-challenge briefings and training weekends in the UK. As a team we will board a flight to Addis Ababa, ready to take on this exhilarating challenge.
