        Top Descriptions

        Though it’s not the easiest waterfall in the world to get to, the Blue Nile Falls is certainly one of the most impressive ones in this region. A rickety bus journey ride will take you out here, or you can hire a private driver and remove some of the stress and hassle. Either way, you’ll probably need a guide on arrival as there are no signs on the network of local tracks that criss-cross this beautiful scenery.

        As there are no signs to the waterfall and a good few hawkers about, you might want to consider hiring a guide from the ticket office for ETB90.
        While the more budget-conscious traveller might prefer to risk the , others might be better off taking one of the tours offered in .
