|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.|

|While the rainy season is the most spectacular time to visit (and the dry season notoriously disappointing), do expect the road into Tis Abay and the trails to the waterfall to be muddy and worn out.|
|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 Bahir Dar to Tis Abay Bus, others might be better off taking one of the tours offered in Bahir Dar.|
