        The Directions

        Head left from the office to the roundabout and take the right facing the mountain on the edge of . Continue up this street until you come to a major dirt road on your left. Stay on this dirt road as far as the church, which should be visible on the hill. The road will first veer right and then veer left before heading uphill to the church. It should take no more than 20 minutes to get to the church. Just before the church, you will see a rocky path to your right heading further up the mountain. Take this rocky path and stay on it for another 20 minutes or so until you reach a fork in the road. Take the left fork (we didn’t explore the right fork) and stay on the most clearly defined trail you can find heading up the left face of the mountain.
         
        After 40 minutes or so the path should skirt around the mountain, being afforded excellent views of Lake Chamo. From here you can either continue up the back side or the front side of the mountain until you reach the highest peak. The front side offers more impressive scenery of and Lakes Abaya/Chamo, while the backside is more peaceful and adventurous. Return the way you came.

        Top Tips

        Take this walk if you’re after some excellent views of , and Lakes Abaya/Chamo.
        Try to take stock of your surroundings on the way up as it’s quite possible to take the wrong path down on the return.
        The first dirt trail can be quite muddy after the rains, when it would be a good idea to take hiking boots.

                Top Descriptions

                While it’s not a big hitter in the East African scene, Nech Sar National Park does offer a wild and exciting safari experience in the Ethiopian south. You can expect to see prehistorically giant crocodiles here (they’re easier to spot than in other countries nearby) and a tonne of birdlife. Just come here more for the experience than wildlife, otherwise you might be somewhat disappointed.

                Top Tips

                The entrance ticket is valid for 24 hours, so try to use it with more than one activity to save on costs.
                While wildlife is neither as abundant nor as diverse as it once was, Nech Sar makes a good entrance to the safaris of East Africa. For the already initiated, think hard about whether or not the cost is worth it to you.
                The ‘God’s Bridge’ that separates Lake Abaya from Lake Chamo can be impassable after the rains, even in a 4×4. Consider taking a boat tour instead.
