  • Melka Kunture is a site where we found remains of Homo erectus of 1,750,000 years, along with lithic pieces and animal remains, there is a small museum and interpretation Center very well organized and exposed. Very Interesting and advisable, you should devote time.

  • Dig site where Homo Erectus and Homo Sapiens found. Superb explanation of Great Rift Valley archeology and geology. They let us play with 40,000 year old Stone Age tools! Guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and spoke great English. We invited him to visit Adadi Maryam church with us, which was also terrific. All this just one hour's drive from Addis Ababa.
