Blue Nile Gorge and Debre Libanos Monastry

Written By Nahom Tadesse

Day trip to Debre Libanos Monastery and Blue Nile Gorge

The Blue Nile Gorge found at 210 km North of Addis Ababa, is one of the most spectacular gorges in the world; bigger, wider and dipper than the Grand Canyon of USA; after 100km drive from Addis Ababa a short detour to the right to the 13th Century Monastery of Debre-Libanos. Here one of the endemic mammals of our country, the Gelada Baboon is also found in the cliff. A few Kilometers from the monastery is the 16th century Portuguese Bridge also worth a visit. Continue to drive through the Stelae or Shewan plain and farm lands till you reach the Gorge.

After having lunch on either side of the river; drive back to Addis Ababa.
