  • At the top of the mountain not far from Addis with a beautiful view of the capital in sunny weather. Beautiful church, a small museum and the Palace of the empty furniture Prince just the building to imagine his life as a Prince. Entry 200birr (€1 = 32 BIRN) without Guide.

  • long trip from the centre of Addis to find..........nothing. It is far from the centre. You pass some place where they sell local fabrics but not really worth buying anything.  more »

  • Very interesting site to with a church and a museum to visit. Behind the church is also king's Menilik palace. It also merits a visit as it hides the story behind the name of the city and much more. The way to the top of the mountain is also full of life with villagers transporting wood and water on very basic transportation means or with no means at all other than simple physical strength. The mountain is surrounded with ecaliptus trees and offers a great view to the city.
  • The weather is perfect. You feel a fresh air like the old days.
